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...

  • Device Applications of Silicon Nanocrystals and Nanostructuresby

    Springer US 2008; US$ 209.00

    This comprehensive, up-to-date book systematically covers recent developments in the technology of silicon nanocrystals and silicon nanostructures, where quantum-size effects are important. The chapters include a number of examples of device applications. more...

  • Advances in Solid State Physics 48by

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2008; US$ 239.00

    This volume features invited talks of the 2008 Spring Meeting of the DPG section Condensed Matter Physics (Sektion kondensierte Materie der DPG) which was held in Berlin, Germany, and gives a nice overview of the present status of condensed matter physics. 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...

  • Frontiers and Challenges in Warm Dense Matterby

    Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 139.00

    Warm Dense Matter (WDM) occupies a loosely defined region of phase space intermediate between solid, liquid, gas, and plasma, and typically shares characteristics of two or more of these phases. WDM is generally associated with the combination of strongly coupled ions and moderately degenerate electrons, and careful attention to quantum physics and... 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...

  • Magnetism and Synchrotron Radiation: Towards the Fourth Generation Light Sourcesby

    Springer International Publishing 2013; US$ 259.00

    Advances in the synthesis of new materials with often complex, nano-scaled structures require increasingly sophisticated experimental techniques that can probe the electronic states, the atomic magnetic moments and the magnetic microstructures responsible for the properties of these materials. At the same time, progress in synchrotron radiation techniques... more...
