Caption: Demonstration of magnetic deflection of one of the new high-temperature superconductors: yttrium- barium- copper oxide (Y-Ba2-Cu3-O7-x). Discovered in 1986, the new superconducting ceramic materials are expected to lead to a technological revolution & are the subject of intensive worldwide research. The photograph shows a small, nitrogen-cooled piece of the superconducting ceramic, suspended by a fine thread, being deflected by a magnet. This is the effect of diamagnetism (the opposite of magnetic attraction). The photograph was taken by researchers investigating the new superconductors at the University of Birmingham.
