Overview

Emphasizing a multidisciplinary approach reflecting distinguished contributions by chemists, physicists, materials scientists, ceramicists, and electrical engineers, this timely reference gives a unified, comprehensive treatment of superconductivity encompassing background information for beginners and pioneering research for the most advanced specialists. Complete with over 500 citations of related literature and numerous diagrams, tables, and photographs, High-Temperature Superconducting Materials includes a review of oxide superconductors' structure/property relationships and factors affecting the conduction mechanism ... chronology of developments leading to the discovery of high-temperature superconducting materials ... basic physics of superconductivity ... discussions of XANES, ac Josephson effect, thermogravimetry, EPR, electron microscopy, infrared reflectance, Raman spectroscopy, magnetic susceptibilities, and specific heat studies ... unusual features of materials with high T[subscript c]'s ... processing techniques' effects on the properties of resultant materials ... and the effects of structure and chemical composition on the superconductivity transition temperature. An authoritative appraisal of a rapidly advancing field, High-Temperature Superconducting Materials is an indispensable reference for solid-state chemists and physicists, materials scientists and engineers, ceramicists, and electrical and electronics engineers as well as advanced undergraduate and graduate students interested in superconductivity.
