High Tc Superconductors 

written by Dr Linda Winkler

A collection of guided laboratory activities to

• Explain what inductance is and how it relates to Faraday's Law of induction.
• Calculate the inductance of a solenoid coil.
• Explain what permeability and magnetic susceptibility are.
• Measure AC impedance, and use to determine inductance of a coil.
• Discuss the difference between ferromagnetism, diamagnetism, and paramagnetism.
• Relate diamagnetism to superconductivity.
• Explain how to measure the transition temperature of a superconductor using its diamagnetism.
