Abstract:

The instant invention is a switch, comprising 1 a pathway of a super conductive material and 2 a ferromagnet, where the ferromagnet is adapted for having at least a first magnetization state and a second magnetization state, where fringe fields from the ferromagnet in the first magnetization state do not exceed a predetermined magnetic field in the super conductive pathway to convert at least a portion of the super conductive pathway to the normal state where fringe fields from the ferromagnet in the second magnetization state exceed the predetermined magnetic field in the super conductive pathway to convert at least a portion of the super conductive pathway to the normal state.
