A Double-Decker Levitation Experiment Using a Sandwich of Superconductors.
Jacob, Anthony T.; And Others
Journal of Chemical Education, v65 n12 p1094-95 Dec 1988
Shows that the mutual repulsion that enables a superconductor to levitate a magnet and a magnet to levitate a superconductor can be combined into a single demonstration. Uses an overhead projector, two pellets of "1-2-3" superconductor, Nd-Fe-B magnets, liquid nitrogen, and paraffin. Offers superconductor preparation, hazards, and disposal methods. (MVL)
