Superconductivity and magnetism

  1. May 25, 2014 #1
    Certain objects are able to influence the behavior of magnets when super-cooled. Does this violate Maxwells equations?

    I appreciate the quick response. What happens to the magnetic field of a super-cooled magnet?

    Magnetic substances don't become superconductors when cooled, or at least, they loose their ferromagnetic properties when transitioning into the superconductive regime.

    There are some exotic materials where ferromagnetism and superconductivity coexist. How exactly that works seems to be subject of an open debate.
