This is the ultimate outreach package for quantum levitation and quantum locking. This set contains portable, easy-to-use experiments that can be used outside the lab and allow a hands-on experience with quantum levitation. Please note that this product requires liquid nitrogen.
How It Works
These high-temperature superconductors conduct electricity without energy loss when cooled to the temperature of liquid nitrogen (77 K). Because a superconductor expels external magnetic fields by forming surface currents, which cancels the external field, it will levitate above a magnet.
