New Book: Superconducting State – Mechanism and Properties
July 15, 2014 (HP84). Oxford University Press published a new book on Superconducting State – Mechanism and Properties authored by Vladimir Z. Kresin, Hans Morawitz and Stuart A. Wolf (ISBN 978-0-19-965255-6). This book focuses on mechanisms of superconductivity, including various spectroscopic methods and data attempting to elucidate these mechanisms in novel high-Tc superconductors. The vortex matter and Josephson effects are not included. Novel superconducting materials discussed in the book include not only the various cuprate compounds, but also iron-based pnictides and chalcogenides, as well as magnesium doboride. Also included are novel topics in superconductivity such as multiband superconductors, the pseudogap and unusual isotope effects.
Physics Today published a very positive review of Superconducting State in its June Issue . It was written by Yuri Galperin (University of Oslo, Norway). Members of American Physical Society (APS) and institutional subscribers can find this review at http://scitation.aip.org/content/aip/magazine/physicstoday/article/67/6/
