Magnetism and Superconductivity

Superconductivity and Magnetism both correspond to long range order in materials. These two phases are normally mutually exclusive and the inclusion of any magnetic material into a superconductor will depress the superconducting properties. At TAMU, we have demonstrated that by combining periodic arrays of nanomagnets and superconductors in hybrid nanostructures one can enhance the effective critical field and critical current of the superconductor.
