Measurement of Levitation Forces of High-"T[subscript c] Superconductors
Becker, M.; Koblischka, M. R.; Hartmann, U.
Physics Education, v45 n1 p42-49 Jan 2010
We show the construction of a so-called levitation balance which is capable of measuring the levitation forces between a permanent magnet and a superconducting high-T[subscript c] thin film sample. The underlying theoretical basis is discussed in detail. The experiment is performed as an introductory physics experiment for school students as well as in practical courses for university students. (Contains 9 figures.)
