- adj. Having, exhibiting, or capable of superconductivity: "a revolutionary superconducting magnetic propulsion system” ( Colin Nickerson).
- adj. Exhibiting superconductivity.
“The reason they need to be superconducting is that they have LOTS of amperage flowing through them.”
“They introduced a measure for the order among the electrons, which they called the superconducting order parameter.”
“Liquid helium is used widely as a coolant, in superconducting magnets, for example.”
“Finding materials which remain superconducting at higher temperatures has therefore, over the past 75 years, been a dream which many researchers have tried to fulfill.”
“They can do that because when they are very cold they are what's called superconducting wire.”
“An example of priority-setting by public officials was the vote in the House of Representatives against further construction of the high energy accelerator known as the superconducting super collider.”
“Technology developed for the Tevatron - namely superconducting, super-cooled magnets - also primed the explosion in hospital MRI machines.”
“Once he isolated the ideal crystals, Tarduno used a device called a superconducting quantum interface device, or SQUID magnetometer, which is normally used to troubleshoot computer chips because it's extremely sensitive to the smallest magnetic fields.”
“To realize this two-level system the researchers suggest using so-called superconducting qubits, used in connection with superconducting resonators, which have been demonstrated already, as the waveguides.”
“Magnets of over 2.0 T are called superconducting magnets and should be maintained at the temperature of liquid helium.”
