New Superconducting Materials Improve the Efficiency and Reliability of Grids and Systems For the first time, a superconducting current limiter based on YBCO strip conductors has now been installed at a power plant. At the Boxberg power plant of Vattenfall, the current limiter protects the grid for own consumption that is designed for 12 000 volts and 800 amperes against damage due to short circuits and voltage peaks. The new technology co-developed by Karlsruhe Institute of Technology and...

University of Nottingham scientists have been levitating fruit flies with magnets to determine how biological organisms are affected by weightless conditions in space. The team has shown that simulating weightlessness in fruit flies on Earth by using magnets causes the flies to walk more quickly, which is a similar finding astronauts have had in experiments on the International Space Station. “It is unfeasible to apply this technique to investigating the effects of weightlessness...

Researchers from North Carolina State University have developed a new computational approach to improve the utility of superconductive materials for specific design applications — and have used the approach to solve a key research obstacle for the next-generation superconductor material yttrium barium copper oxide (YBCO). A superconductor is a material that can carry electricity without any loss — none of the energy is dissipated as heat, for example. Superconductive materials...

A custom-built, $2.5 million "split magnet" system with the potential to revolutionize scientific research in a variety of fields has made its debut at the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory at Florida State University. The world-record magnet is operating at 25 tesla, easily besting the 17.5 tesla French record set in 1991 for this type of magnet. ("Tesla," named for early 20th-century inventor and engineer Nikola Tesla, is a measurement of the strength of a magnetic field.) In addition...

ZURICH, April 18, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Twenty-five years ago IBM (NYSE: IBM) scientists, J. Georg Bednorz and K. Alex Muller altered the landscape of physics when they observed superconductivity in an oxide material at a temperature 50 percent higher(1), (-238 deg C, -397 deg F) than what was previously known. This discovery opened an entirely new chapter in the field of physics and earned them the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1987. (Photo:...

An electromagnet, a magnet whose magnetic field is produced by the flow of electric current, works until the electric current ceases. The magnetic field in a simple electromagnet is created by a wire passing through it with an electric current. The strength of the magnet depends on the amount of current. By making the wire into a coil the magnetic field is concentrated. A straight tube coil is a solenoid. A stronger magnetic field can be produced by putting a ferromagnetic material, such as...
