I7-23: Magnetic Track and Superconductor

Additional Info

  • ID Code: I7-23
  • Purpose: To illustrate levitation of a superconductor and magnetic pinning
  • Description: A chilled superconducting puck is levitated above a magnetic track. Despite the curve and slope of the track, the puck will remain above the track as it moves.

    This is an illustration of the diamagnetic and magnetic pinning effects of a superconducting material. When setting up, be sure to chill the puck in the position you want it above the track for maximum efficiency.

    The University of Cambridge has made available a helpful video lecture on magnetic pinning:
