Superconductors & Superconductivity

  • The Physics of Superconductorsby

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2012; US$ 359.00

    Superconductivity has undergone tremendous advances in recent years. Most notable of course was the discovery of high temperature superconductivity in the cuprates. This discovery resulted in an enormous influx of new workers to the field representing a host of experimental and theoretical disciplines. When we combine this with the discovery of superconductivity... more...

  • The Physics of Superconductorsby

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2011; US$ 449.00

    Superconductivity continues to be intensively studied and remains one of the most interesting research areas in physics. In particular, studies ofsupercon­ ductivity in nanostructures, novel superconducting materials like cuprates, ruthenates, heavy-fermion metals, novel metallic alloys and organics are pre­ sented. New and unexpected behaviors have... more...

  • Cooperative Phenomenaby

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2012; US$ 99.00

    The study of cooperative phenomena is one of the dominant features of contem­ porary physics. Outside physics it has grown to a huge field of interdisciplinary investigation, involving all the natural sciences from physics via biology to socio­ logy. Yet, during the first few decades following the advent of quantum theory, the pursuit of the single... more...

  • Thermal Conductivityby

    Springer US 2006; US$ 269.00

    It has been almost thirty years since the publication of a book that is entirely dedicated to the theory, description, characterization and measurement of the thermal conductivity of solids. The recent discovery of new materials which possess more complex crystal structures and thus more complicated phonon scattering mechanisms have brought innovative... more...

  • Polymers at Cryogenic Temperaturesby

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2013; US$ 179.00

    Written by international experts, this book covers cryogenic treatment, properties and applications of cryo-treated polymer materials. Surveys new breakthroughs in space, superconducting, magnetics and electronics, and offers an outlook on progress to come. more...

  • One-Dimensional Superconductivity in Nanowiresby Fabio Altomare; Albert M. Chang

    Wiley 2013; US$ 145.00

    The book introduces scientists and graduate students to superconductivity, and highlights the differences arising from the different dimensionality of the sample under study. It focuses on transport in one-dimensional superconductors, describing relevant theories with particular emphasis on experimental results. It closely relates these results to... more...

  • Electron-Phonon Interaction in Conventional and Unconventional Superconductorsby Pegor Aynajian

    Springer 2011; US$ 139.00

    The problem of conventional, low-temperature superconductivity has been regarded as solved since the seminal work of Bardeen, Cooper, and Schrieffer (BCS) more than 50 years ago. However, the theory does not allow accurate predictions of some of the most fundamental properties of a superconductor, including the superconducting energy gap on the Fermi... more...

  • Superconductivityby Karl-Heinz Bennemann; John B. Ketterson

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2008; US$ 629.00

    The definitive reference in a classic and important field of modern physics, this extensive and comprehensive handbook systematically reviews the basic physics, theory and recent advances in superconductivity. more...
