Tiny tornadoes of supercurrent affect the way superconductors carry a current. But a magnet-controlled “switch” in superconductor configuration provides unprecedented flexibility in managing the location of vortex filaments, altering the properties of the superconductor. A new system discovered by Notre Dame physicist Boldizsár Jankó and collaborators will enable ongoing adjustments, altering the material’s properties over time.
