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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • High Temperature Superconductivityby Shin-ichi Uchida

    Springer Japan 2014; US$ 99.00

    This book presents an overview of material-specific factors that influence T c and give rise to diverse T c values for copper oxides and iron-based high- T c superconductors on the basis of more than 25 years of experimental data, to most of which the author has made important contributions. The book then explains why both compounds are distinct... 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...

  • Tunneling Dynamics in Open Ultracold Bosonic Systemsby Axel U. J. Lode

    Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 129.00

    This thesis addresses the intriguing topic of the quantum tunnelling of many-body systems such as Bose-Einstein condensates. Despite the enormous amount of work on the tunneling of a single particle through a barrier, we know very little about how a system made of several or of many particles tunnels through a barrier to open space. The present work... more...

  • Superconductivity: Discoveries and Discoverersby Kristian Fossheim

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2014; US$ 89.95

    This book explores the phenomenon of superconductivity from its discovery in 1911 to today. Unlike typical science history books, it presents close-up views of of leading characters in the research and their role in the story, much of it in their own words. more...

  • Spin Spirals and Charge Textures in Transition-Metal-Oxide Heterostructuresby Alex Frano

    Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 129.00

    This thesis presents the results of resonant and non-resonant x-ray scattering experiments demonstrating the control of collective ordering phenomena in epitaxial nickel-oxide and copper-oxide based superlattices. Three outstanding results are reported: (1) LaNiO3-LaAlO3 superlattices with fewer than three consecutive NiO2 layers exhibit a novel spiral... 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...
