In Oct 2011 Boaz Almog and Barak Deutscher from the superconductivity group at Tel-Aviv University lead by Prof. Guy Deutscher, demonstrated how a superconductor disc is trapped in a surrounding magnetic field, a phenomenon called “Quantum Levitation” or “Quantum Locking”. By using the exceptional large scale superconductors produced by Mishael Azoulay, they are able to demonstrate a quantum effect that, although well known to physicists worldwide, was never seen and demonstrated this way. In addition to developing new superconductor technologies and applications, the superconductivity group in Tel-Aviv University is dedicated to teaching and educating the young and adults about superconductivity, through the unique and counter-intuitive phenomena of ‘quantum locking’ and ‘quantum levitation’.
