What are the applications of a superconductor?
The discovery of better superconducting compounds takes us another step towards faster
computers with larger storage capacities, nuclear fusion reactors in which ionized gas
is confined by magnetic fields, magnetic levitation ("Maglev") trains and more efficient
generation and transmission of electrical power. ( Microsoft Encarta 2004 DVD). I hope
that this helps.
