Superconductors & Superconductivity

  • Superconductivity in d- and f-Band Metalsby

    Springer US 2012; US$ 99.00

    Possibility of Excitonic Superconductivity.- Some Comments on the Excitonic Mechanism of Superconductivity.- Maximum Tc ? Optimistic Evidence.- A Theory of the Electron-Phonon Interaction and the Superconducting Transition Temperature, Tc, In Strongly Scattering Systems.- Unexpected Superconductivity in rf. Sputtered Nb/Ge Samples.- Gap Anisotropy... 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...

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

    Wiley 2013; US$ 145.00

    Fabio Altomare works as Experimental Physicist at D-Wave Systems where he is involved in the practical implementation of an adiabatic quantum processor. He received his Ph.D. from Purdue University in 2004 studying superconductivity in 1-dimensional nanowire. Before his current appointment, he worked as Postdoctoral Research Associate at Duke University,... 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 K.H. Bennemann; John B. Ketterson

    Springer 2008; US$ 629.00

    Reviews the basic physics, theory and advances in superconductivity. Covering the entire field, this resource carefully blends theoretical studies with experimental results. It describes conventional and unconventional superconductors. It is useful as a reference work for researchers, students and teachers. more...

  • Quantum Statistical Mechanicsby N. N. Bogolubov Jr.

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2014; US$ 112.00

    In this book we have solved the complicated problem of constructing upper bounds for many-time averages for the case of a fairly broad class of model systems with four-fermion interaction. The methods proposed in this book for solving this problem will undoubtedly find application not only for the model systems associated with the theory of superconductivity... more...

  • P.G. De Gennes' Impact on Science - Volume Iby Julien Bok; Jacques Prost; Françoise Brochard-Wyart

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2009; US$ 62.00

    This publication, in two volumes, is devoted to the scientific impact of the work of Nobel Laureate, Pierre-Gilles de Gennes, one of the greatest scientists of the 20th century. It covers the important fields for which de Gennes was renowned: solid state (magnetism and superconductivity), macroscopic random media and percolation, supersolids, liquid... more...

  • Handbook of High -Temperature Superconductivityby J.S. Brooks; J. Robert Schrieffer

    Springer New York 2007; US$ 269.00

    Since the 1980s, a general theme in the study of high-temperature superconductors has been to test the BCS theory and its predictions against new data. At the same time, this process has engendered new physics, new materials, and new theoretical frameworks. Remarkable advances have occurred in sample quality and in single crystals, in hole and electron... more...

  • Superconductivityby W. Buckel; Reinhold Kleiner

    Wiley 2008; US$ 155.00

    Professor Werner Buckel (1920-2003) became a professor at the Technical University of Karlsruhe, Germany, in 1960 after receiving his PhD at the University of Erlangen. Except for three years which he spent establishing the Institute for Superconductivity at the Research Center in Jülich, Germany, he remained at the Technical University of Karlsruhe... more...

  • Concise Encyclopedia of Magnetic and Superconducting Materialsby K.H.J. Buschow

    Elsevier Science 2005; US$ 435.00

    Magnetic and superconducting materials pervade every avenue of the technological world ? from microelectronics and mass-data storage to medicine and heavy engineering. Both areas have experienced a recent revitalisation of interest due to the discovery of new materials, and the re-evaluation of a wide range of basic mechanisms and phenomena. This... more...
