Superconductors & Superconductivity

  • After the Breakthroughby Helga Nowotny; Ulrike Felt

    Cambridge University Press 1997; US$ 42.00

    Short book on the history and sociology of science surrounding the discovery of high-temperature superconductivity. more...

  • Applications of High Temperature Superconductors to Electric Power Equipmentby Swarn S. Kalsi

    Wiley 2011; US$ 114.00

    The only one-stop reference to design, analysis, and manufacturing concepts for power devices utilizing HTS . High temperature superconductors (HTS) have been used for building many devices for electric grids worldwide and for large ship propulsion motors for the U.S. Navy. And yet, there has been no single source discussing theory and design issues... 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...

  • Condensed Matter Theories, Volume 24 (With Cd-Rom)by Feodor Kusmartsev

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2009; US$ 260.00

    This unique volume presents the scientific achievements of outstanding scientists from different countries working in diverse areas of Condensed Matter Physics. Drawn from the 32nd International Workshop on Condensed Matter Theories held in Loughborough in August 2008, these 46 papers, while centered on the concepts and techniques of theoretical condensed... more...

  • Cryogenic Engineeringby K.D. Timmerhaus; Richard Reed

    Springer 2007; US$ 269.00

    Starting with an historical background dating to the 1850s, this book reviews the development of data resources available for cryogenic fields and properties of materials. The advances in cryogenic fundamentals are covered by reviews of cryogenic principles, cryogenic insulation, low-loss storage systems, modern liquefaction processes, and more. more...

  • Discovering Superconductivityby Gren Ireson

    Wiley 2012; US$ 125.00

    Superconductivity is a quantum phenomenon that manifests itself in materials showing zero electrical resistance below a characteristic temperature resulting in the potential for an electric current to run continually through such a material without the need for a power source. Such materials are used extensively in medical and power applications,... 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...

  • Flux Pinning in Superconductorsby Teruo Matsushita

    Springer 2007; US$ 299.00

    Deals with the flux pinning mechanisms and properties and the electromagnetic phenomena caused by the flux pinning common for metallic, high-temperature and MgB2 superconductors. This book helps the readers learn why the resultant loss is of hysteresis type in spite of such mechanism. more...

  • Fundamental Elements of Applied Superconductivity in Electrical Engineeringby Yinshun Wang

    Wiley 2013; US$ 130.00

    Superconducting technology is potentially important as one of the future smart grid technologies. It is a combination of superconductor materials, electrical engineering, cryogenic insulation, cryogenics and cryostats. There has been no specific book fully describing this branch of science and technology in electrical engineering. However, this book... more...

  • High Tc Superconductor Materialsby E. Kaldis; J. Schoenes; H.-U. Habermeier

    Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 93.95

    The dynamic developments in high-temperature superconductivity over the last three years has augmented the importance of materials research not only for applications, but also for the understanding of underlying physical phenomena. The discovery of new superconductors has opened up new facets of High T c research, and the perfection of already known... more...
