Electrodynamics of spin currents in superconductors

In recent work we formulated a new set of electrodynamic equations for superconductors as an alternative to the conventional London equations, compatible with the prediction of the theory of hole

How Alfven’s theorem explains the Meissner effect

Alfven's theorem states that in a perfectly conducting fluid magnetic field lines move with the fluid without dissipation. When a metal becomes superconducting in the presence of a magnetic field,

On the dynamics of the Meissner effect

The question of how a metal becoming superconducting expels a magnetic field is addressed. It is argued that the conventional theory of superconductivity has not answered this question despite its

Momentum of superconducting electrons and the explanation of the Meissner effect

Momentum and energy conservation are fundamental tenets of physics, that valid physical theories have to satisfy. In the reversible transformation between superconducting and normal phases in the

Defying Inertia: How Rotating Superconductors Generate Magnetic Fields

I discuss the process of magnetic field generation in rotating superconductors in simply connected and multiply connected geometries. In cooling a normal metal into the superconducting state while it

Spin Meissner effect in superconductors and the origin of the Meissner effect

We propose a dynamical explanation of the Meissner effect in superconductors and predict the existence of a spin Meissner effect: that a macroscopic spin current flows within a London penetration

The Lorentz force and superconductivity

The origin of the Meissner effect in new and old superconductors

It is generally believed that superconducting materials are divided into two classes: ‘conventional’ and ‘unconventional’. Conventional superconductors (the elements and thousands of compounds
