Bell Labs has demystified how superconductors abandon their resistanceless conduction when they reach their "critical current." Tiny, previously stationary magnetic vortices, containing a single quantum of magnetic flux, begin an organized coherent migration at critical current, which Bell Labs researchers have been able to view for the first time. The new imaging technique is beginning to catch on with other superconductor researchers, and may lead to a better understanding of the high-temperat
