Superconductivity

Tracer Bullet 92-6


SCOPE

Superconductivity is the flow of electric current without any resistance. It was first observed in 1911 at 4.2 K (-452° F), near absolute zero temperature by Heike Kamerlingh Onnes. It is accompanied by magnetic phenomena. This guide lists information sources on this subject which are located in the collections of the Library of Congress.
