Abstract

We developed a brand new superconducting motor using high-Tc ceramic superconductors for the first time. This motor, named the “Meissner Motor” , utilizes the repulsive force caused by the Meissner effect, which appears below Tc and disappears above that. The motor rotated at a maximum speed of 40 rpm and generated a torque below 0.66 gf-cm. Though the repulsive force to drive the motor increased with the decrease of temperature or the increase of the gradient magnetic field, it was only about 1.1 gf/g at 77 K in 3500 G/cm and differs a little with the processes’ of magnetization. The rotating speed of the motor is limited by heating ability and the torque is limited by cooling ability.
