Silsbee rule: An important result of the existence of critical magnetic field is that there is also critical strength of current Ic flowing in the

Dear Friends, Superconductors are useful in a number of applications and in this article we will highlight the applications of superconductors: 1. Generation and transmission

As we have already derived the London equations in last article. Now let us explain the flux penetration (Meissner effect) from London equations: To explain

London Equations: As discussed in the Meissner effect that one of the conditions of the superconducting state is that Magnetic flux density (B) = 0

Depending upon their behavior in an external magnetic field, superconductors are divided into two types: a) Type I superconductors and b) Type II superconductors Let

Dear Friends, In this article we will discuss the following: a) what are superconductors, b) what is critical temperature and its importance, c) What is

A qualitative discussion of a successful theory of superconductivity was given by Bardeen, Copper and Schrieffer, known as BCS theory after the initials of their
