Meissner effect

Definition

Electronics

  • For a material in a superconducting state, the active exclusion of an external magnetic field from penetrating its interior. Under such conditions a superconducting material reflects a magnetic field, and this property may be used to induce magnetic levitation. If a magnetic field of sufficient strength is applied, it penetrates the interior of the material, and the superconductivity is terminated.
