Superconducting Levitation Demos
Zero field cooled (ZFC) (left) and field cooled (FC) (right) high temperature superconductor (HTSC), melt-textured quasi-single crystal YBCO.
Left: Free rotating pinned discs field cooled over melt-textured quasi-single crystal YBCO.
Right: HTSC film levitating below a permanent magnet. The YBCO film is deposited by the Pulse Laser Deposition (PLD) technique.
