Superconductors & Superconductivity

  • Tunnel Visionsby Michael Riordan; Lillian Hoddeson; Adrienne W. Kolb

    University of Chicago Press 2015; US$ 32.00

    Starting in the 1950s, US physicists dominated the search for elementary particles; aided by the association of this research with national security, they held this position for decades. In an effort to maintain their hegemony and track down the elusive Higgs boson, they convinced President Reagan and Congress to support construction of the multibillion-dollar... more...

  • Towards a Spin-Ensemble Quantum Memory for Superconducting Qubitsby Cécile Grèzes

    Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 129.00

    This work describes theoretical and experimental advances towards the realization of a hybrid quantum processor in which the collective degrees of freedom of an ensemble of spins in a crystal are used as a multi-qubit register for superconducting qubits. A memory protocol made of write, read and reset operations is first presented, followed by the... more...

  • Charge and Heat Transport Phenomena in Electronic and Spin Structures in B20-type Compoundsby Naoya Kanazawa

    Springer Japan 2015; US$ 129.00

    This thesis presents systematic experimental research on chiral-lattice crystals referred to as B20-type germanium compounds, especially focusing on skyrmion spin textures and Dirac electrons. An emergent electromagnetic field observed in MnGe demonstrates a formation of three-dimensional skyrmion crystals. Detection of skyrmions in nanoscale Hall... more...

  • Magnetism and Transport Phenomena in Spin-Charge Coupled Systems on Frustrated Latticesby Hiroaki Ishizuka

    Springer Japan 2015; US$ 129.00

    In this thesis, magnetism and transport phenomena in spin-charge coupled systems on frustrated lattices are theoretically investigated, focusing on Ising-spin Kondo lattice models and using a combination of Monte Carlo simulation and other techniques such as variational calculations and perturbation theory. The emphasis of the study is on how the... more...

  • Statistical Mechanics of Superconductivityby Takafumi Kita

    Springer Japan 2015; US$ 89.99

    This book provides a theoretical, step-by-step comprehensive explanation of superconductivity for undergraduate and graduate students who have completed elementary courses on thermodynamics and quantum mechanics. To this end, it adopts the unique approach of starting with the statistical mechanics of quantum ideal gases and successively adding and... more...

  • Topological States on Interfaces Protected by Symmetryby Ryuji Takahashi

    Springer Japan 2015; US$ 99.00

    In this book, the author theoretically studies two aspects of topological states. First, novel states arising from hybridizing surface states of topological insulators are theoretically introduced. As a remarkable example, the author shows the existence of gapless interface states at the interface between two different topological insulators, which... more...

  • Pseudogap and Precursor Superconductivity Study of Zn doped YBCOby Ece Uykur

    Springer Japan 2015; US$ 129.00

    In this thesis, the pseudogap and the precursor superconducting state, which are of great importance in clarifying the superconductivity mechanism in high-temperature cuprate superconductors, are investigated with a c -axis optical study in YBa 2 (Cu 1-x Zn x ) 3 O y . Testing was performed over a wide energy range with smaller temperature intervals... more...

  • Superconductivityby R.G. Sharma

    Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 179.00

    This book presents the basics and applications of superconducting magnets. It explains the phenomenon of superconductivity, theories of superconductivity, type II superconductors and high-temperature cuprate superconductors. The main focus of the book is on the application to superconducting magnets to accelerators and fusion reactors and other applications... 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...

  • Iron-Based Superconductivityby Peter D. Johnson; Guangyong Xu; Wei-Guo Yin

    Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 179.00

    This volume presents an in-depth review of experimental and theoretical studies on the newly discovered Fe-based superconductors.  Following the Introduction, which places iron-based superconductors in the context of other unconventional superconductors, the book is divided into three sections covering sample growth, experimental characterization,... more...
