"Between 1986 and 1994 most advances in the field of superconductivity related to the discovery of new superconductor "systems" and compounds. In recent years, except for the discovery of several atypical superconductors, superconductor news has been mainly about novel ways to employ the new generation of ceramic superconductors, innovative fabricating techniques and new PWD (planar weight disparity) superconductors." from Superconductors.org

This is a newer page at PESWiki, and is hence not very full. However, as of Oct. 2009, Google lists some 170 pages at PESWiki that mention superconductivity.

    Andrew Abolafia's Static Field Converter (SFC) - Andrew Abolafia, an inventor from New York, has a patented invention which he claims to be able to harvest energy from magnets, not from rotation but from regular magnets, some diamagnets, which are ceramic superconductors that repel regular magnets, and some liquid nitrogen (to maintain the low temperature) and superconductivity.

    Joe Eck Claims Room Temperature Superconductor Discovery - A private researcher, Joe Eck, has claimed to have made a discovery in the field of superconductors -- materials that have zero electrical resistance. He claims to have found a copper-oxide compound that is not only superconductive, but shows signs of superconductivity at room temperature -- a potential "Holy Grail" of science. (PESN and BeforeItsNews; December 7, 2011)
  • Anti-Gravity / Superconductors >
    Quantum Levitation - A video courtesy of the Association of Science-Technology Centers shows how "quantum trapping" or "locking," a chilled disc holds its distance and angle on a square set of magnets, rotates over a circular magnet, and runs along a track of magnets, holding its angle and distance from the track. (YouTube / ASTCvideos; October 16, 2011)
  • Superconductors / Grid >
    Sapphire fibers carry 40 times more electricity than copper wire - Researchers from Tel Aviv University have now developed a new type of cost-effective superconductive wire made from single-crystal sapphire fibers, which are then coated in a ceramic mixture, which they claim can carry 40 times more electricity than copper wiring of the same size. Slightly thicker than a human hair, they must be continuously cooled in order to remain in a superconducting state. (GizMag; September 9, 2011)

    Energy-Generating T-Shirts Could Someday Power Your Electronics - Scientists at the University of Texas at Dallas have discovered a way to create energy generating textiles from powder-infused carbon nanotubes. If they can weave this energy-transmitting yarn into ready-to-wear material, this energy-transmitting yarn could be fashioned into lightweight batteries you can wear. (Inhabitat; January 16, 2011)
  • Storage > Capacitors > Superconductors >
    Graphene supercapacitor breaks storage record - Researchers in the US have made a graphene-based supercapacitor that can store as much energy per unit mass as nickel metal hydride batteries – but unlike batteries, it can be charged or discharged in just minutes or even seconds. The new device has a specific energy density of 85.6 Wh/kg at room temperature and 136 Wh/kg at 80 °C. (PhysicsWorld; Nov 26, 2010)
  • Superconductors >
    Superconductor breakthrough could power new advances - Engineers at the University of Cambridge have announced their first batch of a new range of powerful superconductors which could revolutionise the production of machines like hospital MRI scanners and protect the national grid. The breakthrough has improved the effectiveness of yttrium barium copper oxide (YBCO) and a related family of superconducting materials. (PhysOrg; July 9, 2010)
  • Superconductivity can induce magnetism - Andrea Bianchi, a professor in the Department of Physics at the Université de Montréal, and his colleagues show that, contrary to previous belief, superconductivity can induce magnetism, which has raised a new quantum conundrum. (PhysOrg; Sept, 11, 2008)
