Superconducting alloy. Ingot of niobium- tantalum alloy, a superconducting metal material. Superconductivity occurs in certain materials at very low temperatures. Superconductors carry electrical current with little or no resistance and exclude magnetic fields. Superconductivity is a quantum physics effect caused when conduction electrons move in pairs and so eliminate resistance to their movement. Superconductors have a range of potential applications and much research has been carried out into the search for materials which are superconducting at high temperatures.
