Caption

Demonstration of magnetic levitation 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 floating freely above a pair of magnets. The photograph was taken by researchers investigating the new superconductors at the University of Birmingham. Blue tint; original is BW print A250/011. Photo taken 18/5/87.
