All about superconductivity

All about Superconductivity. Mini-gammes, videos, goodies, and a rich scientific content.
superconductivity's insight:

 Superconductivity is a phenomenon of exactly zero electrical resistance and expulsion of magnetic fields. it occures in materials when they are cooled at the critical temperature.

Critical temperature is the temperature under which particles stop moving, we called this critical temperature "absolute zero".


Discover the superconductivity through a playful website wich present :

- how it works ? (it's levitate)

- what for ? 

- Materials (mercury, cuprates...)

Superconductor Uses

superconductivity's insight:

This website show us applications of superconductivity nowadays and  in the future. For example,  in china, they create a train wich work with superconductivity. Moreover,USA try to develop a superconductivity network. they want to use this technic to economize the energy and then money.

Superconducting Magnetic Energy Storage (SMES) | SuperPower

superconductivity's insight:

This document present the SMES (Superconductivity Magnetic Energy Storage). We learn that the SMES can store the electricity without electricity loss. Because in conductor materials, energy is lost because of the joule effect. The SMES consist of two parts :  cryogenically cooled superconducting coil and power conditioning system. This solution of energy storage can improve profitability of the ecological energy, like wind or solar energy, and the distibution of this energy too. This system can ensure deliverance of high energy power without lot of electricity because there is no energy loss. Accordingly, we can't lose electricity so we win money.
