This talk will include a great and memorable experimental demonstration of the discussed effect!

An electric current flowing through a metal wire made, for instance, of copper will be subject to losses due to the electric resistance. At low temperatures, however, some materials become superconducting, hence electric currents can flow without resistance and thus without losses. Superconductors go one step further, they can also expel magnetic fields. I will demonstrate and briefly explain these two fundamental properties of superconductors. Finally, I will sketch the boundaries of current understanding of superconductors and show how my research aims to provide new insight.
