In The New Superconductors, Frank J. Owens and Charles P. Poole, Jr., offer a descriptive, non-mathematical presentation of the latest superconductors and their properties for the non-specialist. Highlights of this up-to-date text include chapters on superfluidity, the latest copper oxide types, fullerenes, and prospects for future research. The book also features many examples of commercial applications; an extensive glossary that defines superconductivity terms in clear language; and a supplementary list of readings for the interested lay reader.Figure 9.5 shows a warm-core toroidal superconducting electromagnet of the type used in MRI. ... Switch S2 is closed and current flows around the circuit through the loop. ... movement of the wires brought about by this force could result in frictionally generated heat due to the motion of the wire through the ceramic material.
