9780199652556: Superconducting State: Mechanisms and Properties (International Series of Monographs on Physics)

'Superconducting State' provides a very detailed theoretical treatment of the key mechanisms of superconductivity, including the current state of the art (phonons, magnons, and plasmons). A very complete description is given of the electron-phonon mechanism responsible for superconductivity in the majority of superconducting systems, and the history of its development, as well as a detailed description of the key experimental techniques used to study the superconducting state and determine the mechanisms. In addition, there are chapters describing the discovery and properties of the key superconducting compounds that are of the most interest for science, and applications including a special chapter on the cuprate superconductors. It provides detailed treatments of some very novel aspects of superconductivity, including multiple bands (gaps), the "pseudogap" state, novel isotope effects beyond BCS, and induced superconductivity.

About the Author:


Vladimir Z. Kresin, Staff Scientist, Retired, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory,Hans Morawitz, Senior Scientist, IBM Almaden Research Center,Stuart A. Wolf, Professor of Materials Science and Physics, Department of Physics and Materials Sciences and Engineering, University of Viriginia

Vladimir Kresin graduated from Moscow University. Later he studied with the Landau School of Theoretical Physics. He received his PhD and Doctor of Sci. degrees performing studies in the area of superconductivity. He was a Professor of Theoretical Physics at Moscow Pedagogical University. Since 1980 - Principal Investigator at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, UC Berkeley. V. Kresin published 4 monographs and about 250 scientific papers in different areas, but, mainly, his publications have been concerned with the theory of superconductivity. He was a Chairman (or Program Chairman) of 8 International Conferences on Superconductivity. V. Kresin edited 4 books related to various aspects of superconductivity. He is a Co-Editor of the International Journal of Superconductivity and Novel Magnetism.

Hans Morawitz received his B.S. and PhD degrees from Stanford University where he was studying under guidance of Prof. Leonard Schiff. Since 1967 - Senior Scientist at the IBM Research Laboratory (San Jose, CA). He has published around 90 scientific papers and has been involved in the study of novel systems, such as organics, polymers, surface science, and, later, high temperature superconductors.

Stuart Wolf graduated from Columbia College with an AB in Physics and from Rutgers University where he received a PhD in Physics specializing in superconductivity. He was a scientist at the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) for over thirty years where he ultimately headed up all of the superconductivity work. He was instrumental in starting the field of inhomogeneous superconductivity, holding the first international conference on this topic in 1978. He is currently a Professor of Physics and Materials Science at the University of Virginia where he is concerned with superconductivity and other topics in condensed matter physics. He has co-authored two books, edited 8 conference proceedings, and published over 250 articles in peer-reviewed journals, all on various aspects of superconductivity. He is also a founding editor and Co-Editor in Chief of the International Journal of Superconductivity and Novel Magnetism.

Review:


"In this new edition, the superconducting properties of conventional and high Tc superconductors are presented in detail and basic theories to explain the phenomenon discussed. The comprehensive nature of detailing most properties of both material classes provides essential insight into this complex matter, and thus it may well serve as a textbook, limited to the most important objectives in the field. The book is highly recommended for all researchers and students working or interested in solid state physics with special focus on the general aspects of superconductivity." ---Annette Bussmann-Holder, University of Basel


"An excellent guide for beginning researchers, this book will also serve well the needs of those more advanced in the field. It provides an outstanding account of theoretical principles, with enough experimental details to keep focus on the physics behind the mathematics. This is a perfect book for anyone with adequate preparation and who is curious to learn about the mechanisms of superconductivity." --Timir Datta, University of South Carolina


"The book will be an inestimable resource for researchers and advanced students who are acquainted with many-body quantum theory, particularly the Green's function techniques. I would also highly recommend Superconducting State to physicists, chemists, and materials scientists involved in the investigation and development of superconducting materials and devices." --Physics Today
