But new research shows that an iron-based high-temperature superconductor
lets current flow in three dimensions.
As in the midst of a scorching heat wave, and part of its commitment to ensure economical, safe and reliable electricity to its customers, the Long Island Power Authority (LIPA) held a groundbreaking Ceremony earlier this month in Holbrook to announce the construction phase of the world's largest and highest-voltage superconductor
electric transmission cable system.
The lines curving away will also leave an area very close to the superconductor
where there is no magnetic field.
One of the major challenges facing the development of an economical, practical, high-temperature superconductor
has been the extremely weak mechanical behavior of Y-Ba-Cu-O coated onto rolling-aligned biaxially textured substrates (RABiTS).
In experiments in the 1980s, other teams fleetingly made silicon a superconductor
when they squeezed it to about 100,000 times atmospheric pressure.
Researchers can tell when the critical current is reached by measuring the resistive voltage on pairs of voltage taps soldered to the superconductor
Researchers studying the crystalline structure of radioactive plutonium have happened onto the first plutonium-based superconductor
IEC 61788-5 Superconductivity--Part 5: Matrix to superconductor
volume ratio measurement--Copper to superconductor
volume ratio of Cu/Nb-Ti composite superconductors
No other superconductor
has ever shown evidence of more than one type of electron pairing.
