Superconducting Energy Storage Device

Store an electric current in a superconducting toroid.

Explore the physics of this battery of the future. This unique flux-melted YBa2Cu3O7 toroid-based kit stores a persistent electric current and magnetic field with a decay lifetime of 1023 years! This kit mimics the basic function of the U.S. Navy's advanced Superconducting Magnetic Energy Storage (SMES) device planned for applications in space-based lasers. These storage rings are expected to find use in electric utilities for 'load leveling' and also in medical diagnostics.

*Includes:

  • A flux melted YBa2Cu3O7 toroidal superconductor
  • Two powerful rare earth magnets
  • A YBa2Cu3O7 disk
  • A detector needle
  • Non-magnetic tweezers
  • An experiment guide
