In this introductory course, the student will become familiar with high temperature superconductors, the Meissner effect, the zero resistance effect, availability of experimentation kits, how to make a superconductor from scratch, applications for superconductors, and superconductor patent information. By possibly implementing existing superconductor technology in devices such as electromagnets, the student can increase performance and shrink size versus conventional conductors.

This introductory course is intended for any professional working with electrical, electronic, or magnetic equipment that could possibly benefit from the use of high temperature superconductor technology. It is also intended for the engineer or scientist that has a general interest in superconductor technology and would like to know the basics.
