Superconductors , materials that have no resistance to the flow of electricity, are one of the last great frontiers of scientific discovery. Not only have the limits of superconductivity not yet been reached, but the theories that explain superconductor behavior seem to be constantly under review. In 1911 superconductivity was first observed in mercury by Dutch physicist Heike Kamerlingh Onnes of Leiden University (shown above). When he cooled it to the temperature of liquid helium, 4 degrees Kelvin (-452F, -269C), its resistance suddenly disappeared. The Kelvin scale represents an "absolute" scale of temperature. Thus, it was necessary for Onnes to come within 4 degrees of the coldest temperature that is theoretically attainable to witness the phenomenon of superconductivity. Later, in 1913, he won a Nobel Prize in physics for his research in this area.
Walter Meissner The next great milestone in understanding how matter behaves at extreme cold temperatures occurred in 1933. German researchers Walter Meissner (above) and Robert Ochsenfeld discovered that a superconducting material will repel a magnetic field (below graphic). A magnet moving by a conductor induces currents in the conductor. This is the principle upon which the electric generator operates. But, in a superconductor the induced currents exactly mirror the field that would have otherwise penetrated the superconducting material - causing the magnet to be repulsed. This phenomenon is known as strong diamagnetism and is today often referred to as the "Meissner effect" (an eponym). The Meissner effect is so strong that a magnet can actually be

Oak Ridge National Laboratory is helping to make the dream of high-temperature (from 20 K up to 135 K) superconductivity a reality. Since 1988, our High-Temperature Superconductivity Technology Center has blended materials research and wire development through Cooperative Research and Development Agreements (CRADAs) with industry. In the coming decade, high-temperature superconductors will revolutionize much of industry and technology. ORNL researchers are partnering with U.S. industry to hasten the revolution.

The capacity of superconducting materials to handle large amounts of current with no resistance and extremely low energy losses can be applied to electric devices such as motors and generators, and to electricity transmission in power lines. A superconducting power system would meet the growing demand for electricity with fewer power plants and transmission lines than would otherwise be needed.
Low-Temperature Superconductivity
High-Temperature Superconductivity (HTS)
HTS cables can carry three to five times more power than conventional utility cables, which means they can more easily meet increasing power demands in urban areas. Motors
Motors made with superconducting wire will be smaller and more efficient. Generators
HTS generators will use superconducting wire in place of iron magnets, making them smaller and lighter. They may also get more power from less fuel. Transformers
HTS transformers are compact, quiet, and use no cooling oil, so they are much more environmentally acceptable for utility substations located in high-density urban areas. They can even be installed within large commercial buildings. Fault-Current Limiters
HTS fault-current limiters detect abnormally high current in the utility grid (caused by lightning strikes or downed utility poles, for example). They then reduce the fault current so the system equipment can handle it.
