Handbook of Superconducting Materials

CRC Press, Dec 1, 2002 - Science - 310 pages
With the advent of high temperature superconductivity and the increasing reliability of fabrication techniques, superconductor technology has moved firmly into the mainstream of academic and industrial research. There is a wealth of information on the subject but until now there has been no single source of practical information required by people working in the field. The Handbook of Superconducting Materials fills that gap by providing sensible advice and guidance on best-practice and reliable, proven fabrication and characterization techniques. It is a definitive collection of material for researchers and graduate students in materials science and electrical engineering, and practicing engineers involved in the manufacture and processing of superconducting materials.
This handbook is a comprehensive guide to the techniques used to fabricate, characterize, and measure superconducting materials. Over 100 articles have been provided by more than 150 contributors, all of whom are leading researchers in their field. International editorial and advisory boards have ensured that the coverage of the handbook is unrivalled and the content is of the highest quality. Articles are written at a level suitable for graduate students as well as experienced researchers. It has been carefully edited to ensure that all the contributions are well integrated and extensive cross referencing helps the reader to navigate through the book.
The handbook is an essential purchase whichever part of the field you work in and whether you are at your bench top or desk it will become a central point of reference you will not want to be without.
