The classical superconductivity-Didactic Material Prof. Enzo Palmieri

Author: Prof. Enzo Palmieri ; Type of thesis: Didactic Material
Abstract: When hearing about persistent currents recirculating for several year in a superconducting loop without any appreciable decay, we realize that we are dealing with a phenomenon wich in nature is the closest we know to the perpetual motion.
The zero resistivity and the perfect diamagnetism in Mercury at 4.2 K, the discovery of superconducting materials, finally the revolution of the “liquid Nitrogen superconductivity”: Nature discloses drop by drop its intimate secrets.
Nobody can exclude that the final surpreise must still come.
