Can a device be constructed of a super conducting disk connected to a electromagnet that generates a field such that the disc locks "in" the field generated by the electromagnet such that the device self levitates without the need for track or permanent magnets?

No, the locking occurs relative to the field which is now moving with the device. It's like trying to push your dashboard to move your car.

Optimal Electromagnet Shape to Attract a Steel Ball
I have an application where I need an electromagnet that generates a pull force on a ~10mm diameter steel ball that is initially ~10mm from the electromagnet.
For a single coil electromagnet with a fixed number of turns and current, is there a core shape that provides the highest attraction force versus distance for a steel ball of a given diameter?

Consider an electromagnet ( I can change the current in electromagnet and hence its magnetic field) which is placed inside a conducting shell. A large current flows through the electromagnet and it produces a large magnetic field. Now I keep on changing the current in the electromagnet (somehow very quickly ).

Light can be slowed down to a walking pace and even stopped in a medium of hot rubidium vapour. If an electromagnet was placed in this medium and turned on would the popagation of the magnetic field be slowed down or stopped?

In Lithium-Deuterium fuel, the neutrons from the fission reaction bombard the Lithium to produce Tritium and the D-T reaction occurs and we get the energy.
What about Deuterium-Deuterium fusion? Is it possible without the presence of Tritium at all ? If so, then does it release more or less energy than D-T fusion?

Any metal conductor such as aluminium or copper is a conductor because of the free electrons in such metals.
Plasma also has free electrons so, if you can repel plasma the same way as aluminium is repelled when near an AC electro magnet?

Fire doors are doors that can slow the spread of fire from room to room when they are closed. In some buildings, fire doors are held open by electromagnets. bxplain why electromagnets are Used instead of permanent magnets.
