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.
