# Gravitomagnetic Fields in Rotating Superconductors to Solve Tate’s Cooper Pair Mass Anomaly

@article{Tajmar2006GravitomagneticFI, title={Gravitomagnetic Fields in Rotating Superconductors to Solve Tate’s Cooper Pair Mass Anomaly}, author={Martin Tajmar and Clovis Jacinto de Matos}, journal={arXiv: General Relativity and Quantum Cosmology}, year={2006}, volume={813}, pages={1415-1420} }

Superconductors have often been used to claim gravitational anomalies in the context of breakthrough propulsion. The experiments could not be reproduced by others up to now, and the theories were either shown to be wrong or are often based on difficult to prove assumptions. We will show that superconductors indeed could be used to produce non‐classical gravitational fields, based on the established disagreement between theoretical prediction and measured Cooper‐pair mass in Niobium.
