Boaz Almog “levitates” a superconductor

Home Physics Videos Electricity and Magnetism Boaz Almog “levitates” a superconductor

How can a super-thin, three-inch disk levitate something 70,000 times its own weight? In a riveting, futuristic demonstration, Boaz Almog shows how a phenomenon known as quantum locking allows a superconductor disk to float over a magnetic rail -- completely frictionlessly and with zero energy loss
