What is Superconductivity?
- A phenomenon occurring in certain materials at extremely low temperatures, characterized by exactly zero electrical resistance and the exclusion of the interior magnetic field.
- In the early 1900’s it was discovered that certain materials, at very low temperatures, had no resistance to electrical current flow.
- Today, superconductivity is the enabling technology for a vast range of products and solutions with widespread applications such as medical MRI, research and transportation.
