Controlled levitation of a large magnet above superconductors

View publication

Abstract

The levitation of a permanent magnet over a type-II superconductor may be modified and controlled by the addition of a variable magnetic field to the magnet-superconductor system. Using this scheme, levitation of a magnet of significantly larger mass was established by the direct interaction of the additonal field with the levitating magnet.
