About Superconductivity

Superconductors are remarkable materials that can carry electricity without losing any energy in the process, provided they are cooled to low enough temperature.  This enables superconducting wires to carry extraordinarily high electrical currents very efficiently, leading to wide range of transformative applications, from magnets for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), particle accelerators and fusion reactors, to electricity cables and even quantum computers!  Find out more about these amazing materials from the videos and articles from CfAS researchers on this page.
