Taj Quantum T2SC and Associated Wiring Patent (USTPO #11710584)
This posting contains several items concerning the Taj Quantum Type II Above Room Temperature Superconductor and wiring concepts. The fundamental focus of the invention lies in the development of a superconductor wire that offers tangible advantages to the advancement of technology and the retrofitting of existing infrastructure, with the overarching goal of mitigating energy poverty on a global scale. This document aims to delineate numerous fundamental principles derived from our experimental investigations and comprehensive study of T2SC and its corresponding wiring.
Presented below is a graphical representation depicting the outcomes of three efficacious experiments conducted with the aim of fabricating a superconducting wire measuring approximately 10 centimeters in length. The aforementioned “wires” consist of three different forms of graphene doped with aliphatic hydrocarbons. We are utilizing various principles to enhance the conductivity of graphene, a remarkable material, and transform it into a superconductor. This approach is related to previous studies that employed a slight twist of 1.1 degrees in bi and multilayer graphene. However, in our case, we are employing a perforated form of graphene to facilitate more effective creation of cooper pairs. Furthermore, we have employed a “foam” variant that exhibited the most pronounced Meisner effect, albeit with a limited duration of activity before experiencing complete failure. The video presented a 3D structural model that exhibited remarkable performance in terms of resistivity and energy transfer. However, despite its capability to effectively redirect the magnetic field surrounding it, the model demonstrated a weak Meissner effect. Specifically, when an attempt was made to position the model on top of a magnetic field, it exhibited a tendency to disintegrate. This phenomenon arises due to the presence of uneven superconducting throughout the material, as well as the existence of various material-related obstacles. Although these compounds and their various derivatives show considerable potential for the development of superconductive wire, this particular material may not be well-suited for the levitation stunts that have garnered significant attention.
In the above graph, it is important to observe that the instances of variant failures were seen at different temperatures. The observed phenomenon can be attributed to variations in material composition and the potential presence of unidentified impurities. It is acknowledged that the graphene obtained from various suppliers does not consistently exhibit a purity level of 99.9%. However, the utilization of easily accessible materials is preferred due to the inevitable occurrence of slight contamination over extended periods. This action was undertaken as a result of the exorbitant expenses associated with obtaining pure sources of graphene.
The Influence of Temperature on Superconductivity
The thermal characteristics of a substance are of utmost importance in ascertaining its potential to manifest superconductivity. The significance of temperature in relation to superconductors can be attributed to several fundamental factors.
The Formation of Cooper Pairs:
The phenomenon of superconductivity is a result of the creation of Cooper pairs, which consist of pairs of electrons that traverse a lattice composed of positively charged ions. These electrons undergo an attractive interaction facilitated by the vibrations of the lattice, known as phonons. At decreased temperatures, the amplitude of these vibrations is diminished, hence facilitating the formation and sustenance of Cooper pairs in their paired configuration. At elevated temperatures, the enhanced lattice vibrations, known as phonons, have the potential to disrupt the paired electron configurations, hence leading to the deterioration of the superconducting state.
A Comparative Analysis of Thermal Energy and Pairing Energy
In order for the phenomenon of superconductivity to manifest, it is necessary for the energy needed to disrupt a Cooper pair, referred to as the pairing energy, to surpass the thermal energy present inside the system. The relationship between thermal energy and the temperature of a system is directly proportional. When the temperature is reduced, the thermal energy diminishes, and if it falls below the pairing energy threshold, the material has the potential to exhibit superconductivity. The phenomenon of phase transition refers to the abrupt change in the physical properties of a substance as it transitions from one phase to another.
Superconductivity can be classified as a distinct phase of matter analogous to the conventional states of solid, liquid, and gas. The phase transition of a superconductor occurs at a specific critical temperature (denoted as Tc). At temperatures below this threshold, the material demonstrates a complete absence of electrical resistance and the expulsion of magnetic fields, a phenomenon known as the Meissner effect. Beyond this temperature threshold, the material exhibits typical conductive properties characterized by electrical resistance. The aforementioned transformation is mostly motivated by alterations in thermal energy.
Superconductivity is a phenomenon rooted in the principles of quantum mechanics. At temperatures below the critical threshold, the Cooper pairs of electrons exhibit coherent motion, characterized by the absence of scattering, and collectively assume a macroscopic quantum state. Coherence plays a crucial role in the phenomenon of superconductivity, as it is required for the uninterrupted flow of electrical current. This coherence is particularly favored at lower temperatures, as the presence of thermal fluctuations, which have the potential to disrupt this coherence, is significantly reduced.
The phenomenon of reduced scattering of electrons.
At decreased temperatures, the oscillations of the crystalline structure, known as phonons, experience a decrease, resulting in a diminished efficacy of impurity scattering. The ability of Cooper pairs to traverse the lattice without undergoing scattering is a crucial factor in the preservation of the superconducting state. At elevated temperatures, the occurrence of enhanced scattering events can impede the stability of Cooper pairs, thus resulting in the reestablishment of electrical resistance.
The topic of discussion pertains to critical magnetic fields.
The temperature of a superconductor also influences the critical magnetic field at which it transitions from a superconducting state to a normal state. The critical magnetic field of a superconductor exhibits a reduction as the temperature of the superconductor increases. The reason for this phenomenon is attributed to the disruptive effect of elevated temperatures on the Cooper pairs, rendering them more vulnerable to magnetic field-induced dissociation.
The topic of discussion pertains to the concept of material stability.
Certain types of superconducting materials exhibit stability only under extremely low-temperature conditions. In the case of these materials, the maintenance of a low temperature is crucial not only for the attainment of superconductivity, but also for ensuring the stability of the material.
The temperature of a superconductor is a fundamental parameter that significantly influences various aspects, including the generation and stability of Cooper pairs, the quantum coherence of electron pairs, and the phase transition that signifies the initiation of superconductivity. The reduction of temperature leads to a decrease in thermal fluctuations and lattice vibrations, hence facilitating the emergence and preservation of the distinct and intricate quantum state known as superconductivity.
The influence of a superconductor on a compass needle can be described as follows:
The Meissner effect causes a superconductor in its superconducting state to completely repel any external magnetic fields. This phenomenon entails the expulsion of the magnetic field of a compass needle when it is brought into proximity with a superconductor. Nevertheless, this phenomenon generally results in the repulsion of the compass needle from the superconductor, rather than inducing a change in its orientation.
The phenomenon of eddy currents and induced magnetic fields.
Eddy currents may be generated within a superconductor when it is in motion relative to a compass or when subjected to a varying magnetic field in its vicinity. The phenomenon of eddy currents gives rise to the generation of magnetic fields. Due to the absence of resistance in superconductors, the eddy currents are capable of enduring for extended periods. The currents generate magnetic fields that have the potential to affect the alignment of a compass needle. If the induced fields possess sufficient strength and are aligned perpendicular to the Earth’s magnetic field, they have the potential to induce a displacement of the compass needle in a direction perpendicular to its typical north-south orientation.
The phenomenon of flux pinning in type-II superconductors.
Type-II superconductors exhibit the ability to permit the penetration of certain magnetic field lines in the form of quantized vortices. However, these vortices have the propensity to get immobilized or “pinned” to flaws present within the superconductor. The proximity of a compass to a superconductor has the potential to exert an influence on the compass needle due to the presence of pinned vortices. Nevertheless, the impact would certainly exhibit a higher degree of complexity and may not always result in a perpendicular displacement of the needle from its typical alignment.
The phenomenon of interaction between objects and external magnetic fields.
When a superconductor is subjected to an external magnetic field, such as that generated by a magnet or electromagnetic source, and subsequently cooled below its critical temperature to achieve superconductivity, it retains the magnetic field configuration through a phenomenon known as flux pinning. When a compass is subsequently introduced in close proximity to the superconductor, the needle of the compass may experience an influence resulting from the combined impact of the Earth’s magnetic field and the magnetic field configuration that is retained by the superconductor.
Material doping refers to the process of intentionally introducing impurities into a material to alter its electrical, optical, or mechanical properties. The process of material doping involves the deliberate incorporation of impurities into a semiconductor or other materials with the aim of altering their electrical or optical characteristics. The impurities, referred to as dopants, are commonly extraneous atoms that are intentionally introduced into the material in precise and limited quantities. The introduction of doping agents can lead to an augmentation in the quantity of unbound charge carriers, such as electrons or holes, within the material. Consequently, this process has the potential to induce substantial modifications in the material’s electrical conductivity. The following are the fundamental components of material doping:
There are various forms of doping:
N-type doping refers to the process of introducing impurity atoms into a semiconductor material that possess a greater number of valence electrons compared to the atoms of the semiconductor. As a result of this doping, the semiconductor undergoes a transformation and becomes an n-type semiconductor, characterized by an excess of negatively charged carriers. The presence of additional electrons grants them the freedom to migrate, hence enhancing the material’s conductivity. Phosphorus and arsenic are frequently employed as prevalent n-type dopants in silicon.
P-type doping refers to the process of introducing atoms into a semiconductor material that possess a lower number of valence electrons compared to the atoms present in the semiconductor. As a result of this doping, the semiconductor undergoes a transformation into a p-type, or positive-type, semiconductor. This phenomenon results in the formation of vacancies, or locations where an electron is absent and can exhibit mobility, so simulating the behavior of a positive charge carrier. Boron and gallium are frequently employed as p-type dopants in silicon.
The Objective of Doping:
Doping is a technique employed to manipulate the electrical and optical characteristics of a given material. As an illustration, it possesses the capability to convert a material lacking conductivity into one that exhibits conductivity, semiconductivity, or superconductivity. Doping plays a vital role in the manufacturing process of semiconductor devices, including diodes, transistors, and integrated circuits.
The quantity of dopant introduced into a substance is meticulously regulated and often maintained at a relatively minimal level. The quantification of doping concentration is commonly expressed either as the count of dopant atoms per unit volume or as a proportion relative to the total number of atoms in the host material.
Multiple techniques exist for incorporating dopants into a material, such as ion implantation, diffusion, and chemical vapor deposition (CVD).
The Impact of Doping on Performance Enhancement:
In addition to altering the electrical characteristics, the process of doping can also exert an influence on the optical features of a given material, including its light absorption and emission capabilities. This phenomenon is utilized in many technologies such as light-emitting diodes (LEDs) and photodetectors.
What is the reason for the Taj T2SC’s failure to exhibit a complete manifestation of the Meisner Effect?
The primary characteristic of all superconductors is their ability to display zero electrical resistance and high electrical throughput, which refers to their capacity to transmit substantial electrical currents without any dissipation. The response of a superconductor to a magnetic field, such as the magnitude of the Meissner effect, can exhibit variations contingent upon the specific type of superconductor. There are several factors that may contribute to the occurrence of a weak Meissner effect in a superconductor, despite its ability to maintain low resistance and facilitate high electrical throughput.
Type-II superconductors, in contrast to Type-I superconductors, exhibit the ability to accommodate the penetration of magnetic fields in the form of quantized vortices. This phenomenon occurs when the magnitude of the applied magnetic field falls within the range defined by the lower critical field (Bc1) and the upper critical field (Bc2). The phenomenon being referred to is commonly referred to as the vortex state or the mixed state. In the present state, the Meissner effect is not fully realized, as magnetic forces are able to partially penetrate the superconductor. However, the material continues to demonstrate complete absence of electrical resistance. The observed behavior is a distinctive trait shown by Type-II superconductors, encompassing a range of high-temperature superconductors and some metallic compounds.
A significant number of superconductors that exhibit high-temperature characteristics can be classified as Type-II superconductors. These materials possess the ability to conduct substantial electric currents without experiencing any resistance, particularly at elevated temperatures when compared to conventional superconductors. However, they do exhibit the capability for magnetic vortices to infiltrate their internal structure when subjected to a magnetic field. The observed phenomenon of magnetic fields partially penetrating a material is in accordance with a diminished manifestation of the Meissner effect.
In the context of Type-II superconductors, it is observed that magnetic vortices have the propensity to become “pinned” or “locked” at faults or defects present inside the superconducting material. The act of pinning is advantageous in the preservation of superconductivity when subjected to intense magnetic fields and elevated currents. Flux pinning plays a crucial role in the practical utilization of superconductors, such as in the construction of magnets for MRI machines or maglev trains. It is a phenomenon when magnetic fields only partially penetrate the superconductor, resembling a diminished manifestation of the Meissner effect.
Thin Films versus Small Samples:
The Meissner effect may exhibit reduced strength in thin films or small samples of superconducting material. In certain instances, the magnetic field may exhibit partial penetration into the material’s edges as a result of geometric factors, despite the material effectively repelling the magnetic field within its bulk. The phenomenon of surface superconductivity refers to the occurrence of superconductivity at the surface of a material, where the electrical resistance at certain instances, particularly at proximity to the critical temperature or critical magnetic field, it is possible for superconductivity to be localized inside a narrow surface layer of the material, while the interior maintains its normal state. This phenomenon is commonly referred to as surface superconductivity. In the present state, the material may demonstrate a lack of electrical resistance, albeit with a diminished manifestation of the Meissner effect due to the majority of the material not being in the superconducting state.
It is possible for a superconductor to demonstrate a limited manifestation of the Meissner effect while maintaining its characteristic properties of zero electrical resistance and high electrical conductivity. This behavior arises from the intricate interaction between magnetic fields and superconducting currents, particularly in the case of Type-II superconductors. These materials exhibit the phenomenon of partial penetration of magnetic fields in the form of vortices, while simultaneously retaining their superconducting properties. This characteristic is of significant importance for numerous practical applications involving superconductivity.
What is the purpose of developing superconductor wire?
The development of a superconductor wire presents numerous potential benefits and practical uses owing to the distinctive characteristics exhibited by superconducting materials. There exist several primary motivations for the development of superconductor wire:
- The concept of zero electrical resistance refers to the phenomenon when a material or system exhibits no opposition to the flow of electric current.
- Superconductor wires has the remarkable property of exhibiting absolute zero electrical resistance, hence enabling the transmission of electrical current without any dissipation of energy. This phenomenon stands in stark contrast to the behavior of traditional wires, which consistently exhibit resistance and hence dissipate energy in the form of heat. The aforementioned characteristic is greatly sought after in terms of enhancing energy efficiency.
- The concept of high current density refers to the condition in which a significant amount of electric current is flowing through a certain area or volume.
- Superconductors possess the capability to transport significantly higher currents compared to conventional conductors of equivalent dimensions. This phenomenon is commonly referred to as high current density. Therefore, the utilization of superconductor wires enables the generation of robust magnetic fields without the requirement of bulky and weighty wire coils.
Superconductor wires, due to their characteristic of possessing zero resistance, are considered highly suitable for the transfer of electrical power over great distances, as they minimize energy losses. One potential application involves utilizing them for the development of power transmission systems that exhibit high efficiency, enabling the transportation of electricity over long distances while minimizing energy losses.

Consequently, they are regarded as highly efficient devices for energy storage.
Due to the ability of superconductors to efficiently transport substantial electrical currents through diminutive wire structures, devices constructed using superconductor wires possess the advantage of reduced size and weight in comparison to their conventional equivalents. The significance of this aspect becomes more evident in contexts where limitations on space and weight play a crucial role, as shown in the realm of aeronautical applications.
Grid stabilization and fault current limiters:
Superconductor wires have the potential to be utilized in the development of devices that serve the purpose of safeguarding the electrical grid from abrupt increases in current, commonly referred to as fault currents. In the event of a fault, these devices have the capability to promptly and effectively restrict the flow of electricity, so mitigating the potential harm inflicted upon the electrical grid infrastructure.
Superconducting wires play a crucial role in certain configurations of quantum computers. Qubits, which serve as the fundamental units of quantum computation, are generated by their utilization.
The remarkable qualities of superconductor wires, particularly their capacity to transport electrical current without any resistance, hold the potential to bring about a significant transformation in various technological domains. Currently, these technologies are being utilized across a diverse range of applications, including medical devices, energy systems, and other domains. Moreover, they remain a significant area of emphasis in continuing research and development endeavors.
Safety precautions are of utmost importance while handling graphene or other nanomaterials in a research or industrial environment. It is imperative to adhere to suitable safety protocols, which encompass the utilization of personal protective equipment (PPE) and ensuring adequate ventilation. It is imperative to consistently adhere to safety protocols established by one’s employer or pertinent health and safety authorities.
