  7. Nano*High: Superconductivity, Trains and SQUIDs

    02 Feb 2010 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): John Clarke

    Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory Nano*High. Superconductivity is a unique phenomenon where the electric resistance of a material drops to zero. Until only a few decades ago, superconductivity was only observed at extremely low temperatures. Today however, a new class of exotic..., a resource for nanoscience and nanotechnology, is supported by the National Science Foundation and other funding agencies.
