The geometric properties of charged, asymptotically AdS black holes make it possible for charged scalar fields to condense if the temperature of the black hole is sufficiently low. A non-zero expectation value of such a field spontaneously breaks the gauge symmetry. This gravitational version of the abelian Higgs effect has recently been interpreted as being dual to a boundary superconductor transition. In this talk I want to describe certain aspects of the phenomenology of these ‘holographic superconductors’, focusing in particular on effects related to rotation. In such cases the emergence of a magnetic field is expected in the superconducting state, and indeed I will show how this so-called London field is described in the gravitational setting.
