  • Stability of Superconductors by Lawrence Dresner

    Springer 1995; US$ 85.00

    Explains how and when superconductors, once they lose their ability to conduct, get progressively worse instead of better, and what someone trying to make a magnet out of one can do about the problem. A bi-level treatment, the main text suitable for graduate and senior students in physics or enginee more...

  • The New Superconductors by Frank J. Owens; Charles P. Poole

    Springer 1996; US$ 86.95

    Provides a clear, nonmathematical explanation of the nature of superconductivity, as well as current and potential applications in the commercial realm, at a level suitable for the nonspecialist with some exposure to basic physics and chemistry. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or. more...

  • Theory of Superconductivityby A.S Alexandrov

    CRC Press 2003; US$ 220.00

    Theory of Superconductivity: From Weak to Strong Coupling leads the reader from basic principles through detailed derivations and a description of the many interesting phenomena in conventional and high-temperature superconductors. The book describes physical properties of novel superconductors, in particular, the normal state, superconducting critical... more...

  • Bernoulli Potential in Superconductorsby Pavel Lipavsky; Jan Kolacek; Klaus Morawetz; Ernst Helmut Brandt; Tzong-Jer Yang

    Springer 2007; US$ 109.00

    The motion of electrons in superconductors seems to defy our imagination based on daily experience with Newtonian mechanics. This book shows that the classical concepts, such as the balance of forces acting on electrons, are useful for understanding superconductivity. The electrostatic field plays a natural part in this balance as it mediates forces... more...

  • Theory of Fluctuations in Superconductorsby Anatoly Larkin; Andrei Varlamov

    Oxford University Press 2005; US$ 79.99

    This book presents a complete encyclopedia of superconducting fluctuations, summarising the last thirty-five years of work in the field. The first part of the book is devoted to an extended discussion of the Ginzburg-Landau phenomenology of fluctuations in its thermodynamical and time-dependent versions and its various applications. The second part... more...


    World Scientific Publishing Company 2011; US$ 144.00

    The main focus of the book is to present the effects of nanostructuring on superconducting critical parameters. Optimizing systematically flux and condensate confinement in various nanostructured superconductors, ranging from single nano-cells to their hu more...

  • Metal Based Functionally Graded Materialsby Jerzy J. Sobczak; Ludmil B. Drenchev

    Bentham Science Publishers 2010; US$ 35.00

    The aim of this Ebook is to provide a comprehensive overview of the basic production techniques for manufacturing of metal-based graded materials. A concise description of experimental methods and short analysis of some specific structures obtained are presented. In order to provide an easy-readable text, general mathematical models and specific tools... more...

  • Alkali-Doped Fulleridesby Olle Gunnarsson

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 135.00

    Alkali-doped fullerides have attracted strong interest since their production became possible about fifteen years ago. This book presents recent work which may solve intriguing problems arising from a variety of remarkable properties. For example, these solids are superconductors with high transition temperatures, although the similarity between the... more...

  • Applied Superconductivityby Paul Seidel

    Wiley 2015; US$ 540.00

    This wide-ranging presentation of applied superconductivity, from fundamentals and materials right up to the details of many applications, is an essential reference for physicists and engineers in academic research as well as in industry. Readers looking for a comprehensive overview on basic effects related to superconductivity and superconducting... more...

  • Flux Pinning in Superconductorsby Teruo Matsushita

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2007; US$ 299.00

    Superconductivity is now a considerable focus of attention as one of the te- nologies which can prevent environmental destruction by allowing energy to be used with high e?ciency. The possibility of practical applications of sup- conductivitydependsonthemaximumcurrentdensitywhichsuperconductors can carry, the value of losses which superconductors consume,... more...
