Superconducting State: Mechanisms and Properties

Vladimir Z. Kresin, Hans Morawitz, and Stuart A. Wolf


This book provides a very detailed theoretical treatment of the key mechanisms of superconductivity. including the current state of the art (phonons, magnons, plasmons). It also includes a very complete description of the electron–phonon mechanism responsible for superconductivity in the majority of superconducting systems and the history of its development, and a detailed description of the key experimental techniques used to study the superconducting state and determine the mechanisms. In addition, the chapters describe the discovery and properties of the key superconducting compounds that a ... More

Keywords: non-adiabicity, pair correlation, mechanisms, critical temperature, doping, cuprates, two-gap spectrum, proximity effect
