The UP Experience is pleased to welcome Dr. Boaz Almog, a research physicist at Tel Aviv University in Israel. During his UP presentation, “The Future of Quantum Physics,” Dr. Almog will demonstrate the phenomenon of “quantum locking” and will actually levitate a superconductor on the UP stage. This demonstration is the result of many years of research and development on high-quality superconductors and, although well known to physicists worldwide, has never been seen and demonstrated in such a compelling way.
So just how is it possible for a super-thin, three-inch disk to levitate something 70,000 times its own weight? In this fascinating, futuristic demonstration, Dr. Almog will show how quantum levitation allows a superconductor disk to float over a magnetic rail – completely frictionless and with zero energy loss.
Dr. Almog is part of the superconductivity group at Tel Aviv University, which is currently developing new technologies and applications for superconductors. The group is also dedicated to teaching and educating children and adults about superconductivity around the world.
