Demonstration kits

   We offer several demonstration kits for showcasing the Meissner effect, magnetic field trapping and levitation force.

Meissner Effect kit

   The Meissner effect is that a permanent magnetic field is pushed out of a superconductor. Since the magnetic field inside the superconductor is zero, there must be a source of the opposite magnetic field. This source is the superconducting current. Because of the perfect diamagnetism, a magnet can levitate above a superconductor. Details: Meissner Effect kit

Levitating magnet

Power Levitation kit

   Magnetic field locking occurs in a domain superconductor when it is cooled in a magnetic field. If an attempt is made to change the magnetic field, a current will arise in the domain superconductor that opposes this change, resulting in the magnetic field being trapped. This effect also leads to levitation of magnetic materials above the domain superconductor due to the strong repulsive force created between the trapped magnetic field and the external magnetic field.

Superconducting locking

Meissner Effect and Magnetic Locking kit

   This kit is designed to demonstrate the phenomenon of levitation, magnetic field locking by a superconductor and the Meissner effect (levitation). The kit combines two kits for demonstrating levitation, magnetic field locking and levitation force. Details: Meissner Effect and Magnetic Locking kit

Magnetic rail for demonstrating the operation of transport on a magnetic levitation superconducting suspension

   Magnetic rail designed to demonstrate the application of superconductivity in transportation.

   Today, high-speed trains on superconducting magnetic levitation systems set speed records in transportation. For example, the latest record of 603 km/h was set in Japan, and in China, a prototype maglev train set a record of 620 km/h in January 2021. Details: Magnetic rail
