Muhammad Zaki synthesized a high temperature superconductor using a partially modified citrate pyrolysis method. This involved chemically synthesizing the required compound (Yttrium Barium Copper Oxide) in various mediums, followed by annealing in the presence of oxygen. The superconductors exhibited the famous Meissner effect. Later, Zaki went to to test a tunneling magnetoresistance sensor for detection of flux expulsion from a superconductor. Outcome: New experiment for Lab 2 is currently being written up.
