John of Jerusalem or Knights Hospitaller, named after Saint John of Jerusalem aka John the Baptist. The niobium-tin compound Nb3Sn is commercially used as wires for superconducting magnets, due to the material's high critical temperature (18 K) and critical magnetic field (25 T). Order of Knights of the Hospital of St. In fact, tin was one of the first superconductors to be studied; the Meissner effect, one of the characteristic features of superconductors, was first discovered in superconducting tin crystals. Svatý Jan pod Skalou (Saint John Under the Rock), a village in central Bohemia, Czech Republic. Tin becomes a superconductor below 3.72 K.
