Superconductor magnetic field

  1. Sep 3, 2012 #1
    A magnetic field is excluded in a superconductor so what happens to its electrical counterpart? Does it also become excluded? How do superconductors respond to external electric fields?

    The current flows very near the surface or else there would be a B field inside. Amperes law.
    What do you know about how E fields affect conductors and Gauss's law?
