Superconductiviy is a quantum phenomenon. It shows up through strange physical properties which arouse curiosity but also lead to interesting applications. The presence of superconductivity in a book on magnetism is justified: first, because superconductor substances are generally strongly diamagnetic, but also because superconductors are used both to generate relatively intense magnetic fields (superconducting magnets), and to detect very weak magnetic inductions (SQUIDs).
