Superconductor research on calendar

When the Americal Physical Society made their 2012 calendar, they picked a picture from the University of Oslo.

Decorating many physisists' offices: The American Physical Society calendar 2012

The picture shows what happens in a superconducting film when it is exposed to a magnetic field.

The bush-like structures show how the magnetic field penetrates the film, destroying it's superconducting characteristics.

The illustration originates from an article in Physical Review B.
