Abstract

From a theoretical analysis based on an energy minimization procedure and the critical-state model, the authors analyze the levitation of an infinitely long superconductor above infinitely long permanent magnets with different arrangements. A discussion on optimum geometries showing large levitation force and good stability is presented from the model results. © 2007 American Institute of Physics.
