Superconductivity - Unabridged Guide
Here's part of the content - you would like to know it all? Delve into this book today!..... : In a class of superconductors known as type II superconductors, including all known high-temperature superconductors, an extremely small amount of resistivity appears at temperatures not too far below the nominal superconducting transition when an electric current is applied in conjunction with a strong magnetic field, which may be caused by the electric current.
...In the 1980s it was shown theoretically with the help of a disorder field theory, in which the vortex lines of the superconductor play a major role, that the transition is of second order within the type II regime and of first order (i. e. , latent heat) within the type I regime, and that the two regions are separated by a tricritical point.
...In Type II superconductors, raising the applied field past a critical value Hc1 leads to a mixed state (also known as the vortex state) in which an increasing amount of magnetic flux penetrates the material, but there remains no resistance to the flow of electric current as long as the current is not too large.
... Tl-Ba-Ca-Cu-O superconductor: The first series of the Tl-based superconductor containing one Tl-O layer has the general formula TlBa2Can-1CunO2n+3, whereas the second series containing two Tl-O layers has a formula of Tl2Ba2Can-1CunO2n+4 with n = 1, 2 and 3.
There is absolutely nothing that isn't thoroughly covered in the book. It is straightforward, and does an excellent job of explaining all about Superconductivity in key topics and material. There is no reason to invest in any other materials to learn about Superconductivity. You'll understand it all.
