Recently we demonstrated theoretically that the carriers of quantized angular momentum in superconductors are not the Cooper pairs but the lattice ions, which must execute coherent localized motion consistent with the phenomenon of superconductivity. We demonstrate here that in the presence of an external magnetic field, the free superelectron and bound ion currents largely cancel providing a self-consistent microscopic and macroscopic interpretation of near-zero magnetic permeability inside… 
Superconductors and Gravity
We review and discuss some recent developments on the unconventional interaction between superconducting systems and the local gravitational field. While it is known that gravitational perturbations
Possible Alterations of Local Gravitational Field Inside a Superconductor
We calculate the possible interaction between a superconductor and the static Earth’s gravitational fields, making use of the gravito-Maxwell formalism combined with the time-dependent
Theoretical Study of Anomalous Forces Externally Induced by Superconductors
In this work we present a theoretical explanation for the possible anomalous forces induced by superconducting disks and toroids, based on the hypothesis of a preexisting state of generalized quantum
Superconductor in a weak static gravitational field
We provide the detailed calculation of a general form for Maxwell and London equations that takes into account gravitational corrections in linear approximation. We determine the possible alteration
Exploiting Weak Field Gravity-Maxwell Symmetry in Superconductive Fluctuations Regime
Making use of the time-dependent Ginzburg-Landau equations, a possible short time alteration of the static gravitational field in the vicinity of the superconductor is found, providing also a qualitative behaviour in the weak field condition.
Local affection of weak gravitational field from supercondensates
We study the mutual interaction between a superconducting sample and the weak, static Earth’s gravitational field, exploiting the gravito-Maxwell formalism combined with the time-dependent
Exploration Of Anomalous Gravity Effects by Magnetized High-Tc Superconducting Oxides
Driven by the knowledge that mass-ejection from a rocket engine is a major drawback in the exploration of space, investigations of fringe effects (or abnormalities) in known science and dealing with

It is found that when gravitational effects are taken into account, the two historical independent traditional hallmarks of ideal superconductors-perfect conductivity (σ) and perfect diamagnetism
An investigation of the very incomplete Meissner effect
Since the discovery by Meissner and Ochsenfeld’ that a magnetic field is expelled from the bulk of a superconductor in the transition from the normal to the superconducting state, this effect (named
Measurability of Nuclear Electric Dipole Moments
The possibility of measuring a very small nuclear electric dipole moment is explored by calculating the interaction of this moment with an external electric field. It is shown that for a quantum

It is found that, by choosing a particular assembly orientation relative to the orbit and taking a sum and difference of two of the three gradiometer outputs, one can isolate the gravitomagnetic relativistic effect from the large Newtonian background.
Gravitational effects of rotating masses
A gyroscope in orbit about a central rotating mass undergoes relativistic nutational oscillations in addition to the well-known precessional motions. The amplitude of the oscillation is proportional
Laboratory experiments to test relativistic gravity
Advancing technology will soon make possible a new class of gravitation experiments: pure laboratory experiments with laboratory sources of non-Newtonian gravity and laboratory detectors. This paper

It is shown that a small residual uniform magnetic field will pervade the superconductor and that the external fields mutually "induce" additional small internal perturbation fields.
