By Paul Seidel

This wide-ranging presentation of utilized superconductivity, from basics and fabrics correct as much as the main points of many purposes, is an important reference for physicists and engineers in educational examine in addition to in undefined.

Readers trying to find a finished evaluation on uncomplicated results on the topic of superconductivity and superconducting fabrics will extend their wisdom and realizing of either high and low Tc superconductors with recognize to their program. expertise, guidance and characterization are coated for bulk, unmarried crystals, thins fi lms in addition to digital units, wires and tapes.

The major good thing about this paintings lies in its large assurance of important purposes in magnets, strength engineering, electronics, sensors and quantum metrology. The reader will locate info on superconducting magnets for varied functions like particle physics, fusion examine, drugs, and biomagnetism in addition to fabrics processing. SQUIDs and their utilization in drugs or geophysics are
thoroughly coated, as are superconducting radiation and particle detectors, features on superconductor electronic electronics, top readers to quantum computing and new devices.

KGaA. 2 1 Fundamentals the resistance would approach zero value at very low temperatures, was suggested by the strong decrease with decreasing temperature. Initially, Kamerlingh-Onnes studied platinum and gold samples, since at that time he could obtain these metals already with high purity. He found that during the approach of zero temperature the electric resistance of his samples reached a finite limiting value, the so-called residual resistance, a behavior corresponding to the second possibility discussed above.

Thus, the immense progress in applications of superconductivity will be demonstrated within this new handbook on a level which covers the range from popular aspects for students and beginners till details for specialists. Because of the finite size for a two-volume book, the basic knowledge on superconductivity had to be reduced to a minimum required for understanding the main part on applications. The historical development is not reflected in detail but sometimes with respect to the actual status in order to demonstrate the speed of progress.
