AURORA: A public applications server to introduce students to superconductivity

Riva, Nicolò; Grilli, Francesco; Dutoit, Bertrand


The growing interest in modeling superconductors has led to the development of increasingly effective numerical models and software. Alongside this interest, the question of how to teach and to explain the operation of superconductors to students has arisen. Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL) and Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) have created a series of web applications based on COMSOL Multiphysics that are publicly accessible through a web server called AURORA. Users can change the values of several parameters of the applications and observe the influence on the results. This article describes part of the currently available applications and some exercises that can be done with them.
