Superconductivity: Physics and Applications brings together major developments that have occurred within the field over the past twenty years. Taking a truly modern approach to the subject, the book provides the reader with an interesting and accessible introduction, including features such as end of chapter problems, numerous relevant examples and also brief interviews with key researchers in the the field. SI units are used throughout to ensure the text is up to date and students are carefully guided from the basic physics to more advanced theory, applications and historical developments to put the subject firmly into context.

An invaluable text for all students taking courses on superconductivity, solid state physics and condensed matter physics.

  • innovative approach to the subject bringing together all the major developments in the field.
  • includes interviews with key Nobel Laureates.
  • SI Units used throughout.
