At the center of science

For those of us without advanced physics degrees, the light bulbs above our heads remain dark when trying to understand the work conducted at the Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility. Exploring the origins of the universe and the fundamentals of matter requires brain power and know-how precious few possess.

Mikko Hakala's curator insight, July 27, 5:40 AM

World-record electrical current demonstrated, 100 000 A, obtained with stacked yttrium-based superconducting tapes. Superconductors are the only viable option, since they can carry large dissipationless electrical currents.

 

As electrical current creates a magnetic field, superconductors can be used to create strong magnets. These in turn are needed in fusion reactors to control the plasma, in medical instruments and in power-electronics devices.

 

A short article explaining the achievement and two good illustrations.
