Well, it seems Google doesn’t care about the 104th Anniversary of the discovery of Superconductuvity. No #levitatingdoodle for us. Nonetheless today we celebrate superconductivity!
A nice occasion of outreach about this fascinating topic:
What is a superconductor?
Superconductors can carry electricity with no resistance and are used for specialized applications like MRIs, maglev trains and particle accelerators. Superconductor-based electronics would be extremely efficient because they would generate no waste heat, but he fact that they would only work at temperatures close to absolute zero makes them impractical. 468 more words
it seems that our open days about superconductivity are so funny that even the spanish tv starts to be interested in condensed matter! The last episode of the Órbita Laika show (on air every sunday nigth) was dedicated to superconductivity. 103 more words
