Just go to wikipedia.org and do a search on superconductor. That should get you started, as well as provide you with further links for more detailed research.

Has Zz gone on a vacation or something? :biggrin: :wink:

Seriously, it would actually be better for her to google "superconductor" than wiki it.

I know, but for basic stuff, wikipedia isn't too bad. And for a newbie to sift through the google hits to get a good overview is sometimes a bit of a challenge. Maybe I should start using hyperphysics more -- I haven't used them much.

In this case, the first hit is probably just what the OP wanted: http://superconductors.org

HP is a bit terse, but it's a good reference if you know the basics.

Wow, great website! I like the little flashing neon sign for "Highest Tc Claim = 150K" :biggrin:
Although I saw that flashing number, I assumed it to be one of those Weather Underground thingies. :redface:

thankyou for the replies but i have already gone through wikipedia but i could get only 3 properties but actually there are 8 properties...
please if anybody can help me for the explanation...the 8 properties are
(1)the critical field (2)the critical current density (3)meissner effect or perfect diamagnetism (4)type I and type II suprconductors (5)penetration depth (6) flux quantization (7)josephson effect and tunneling and (8)energy gap.
if you know in which website these properties explanation is available with diagrams please reply me....and if u can explain about any of the property above please do that...
