A basic introduction to all aspects of superconductors and their uses and how to prepare them. Some multimedia presentations and explanations.
Graph of resistance against temperature for YBCO, and two short movies of a magnet levitating above a superconductor. Great fun to see the movies - understanding how this happens is more challenging
Excellent site covering all aspects of superconductors, their uses, history, manufacture, and likely developments.
A comprehensive site all about superconductivity with plenty of examples of their uses.
Useful pages about superconductors and their various applications including maglev trains, particle accelerators and MRI scanners.
Ideas and resources for teaching superconductors including experimental details of how to make them, and notes on demonstrations and experiments.
