|Introduction To Superconductivity And High-Tc Materials
Lowest new price: $36.00
Lowest used price: $25.52
List price: $36.00
Author: Michel Cyrot
What sets this book apart from others on the introduction to super-conductivity and high-Tc materials is its simple and pragmatic approach. The authors describe all relevant superconducting phenomena and rely on the macroscopic Ginzburg-Landau theory to derive the most important results. Examples are chosen from selected conventional superconductors like NbTi and compared to those of high-Tc materials. The text should be of interest to students and researchers in all branches of science and engineering, with the possible exception of theoretical physicists, who may require a more mathematical approach.

Author: Karl-Hubert Mess
The main topic of the book are the superconducting dipole and quadrupole magnets needed in high-energy accelerators and storage rings for protons, antiprotons or heavy ions. The basic principles of low-temperature superconductivity are outlined with special emphasis on the effects which are relevant for accelerator magnets. Properties and fabrication methods of practical superconductors are described. Analytical methods for field calculation and multipole expansion are presented for coils without and with iron yoke. The effect of yoke saturation and geometric distortions on field quality is studied. Persistent magnetization currents in the superconductor and eddy currents the copper part of the cable are analyzed in detail and their influence on field quality and magnet performance is investigated. Superconductor stability, quench origins and propagation and magnet protection are addressed. Some important concepts of accelerator physics are introduced which are needed to appreciate the demanding requirements on field quality in large storage rings. The operational experience with the superconducting Hera collider serves as an illustration. Finally superconducting correction coils and practical construction and fabrication methods of accelerator magnets are discussed. The physical and technical principles described in the book are substantiated with a wealth of experimental data on multipoles, persistent- and eddy-current effects, quench performance and much more.

This invaluable book is based on lecture notes developed for a one-semester graduate course entitled Interaction of Radiation with Matter , taught in the Department of Nuclear Science and Engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The main objective of the course is to teach enough quantum and classical radiation theory to allow students in engineering and the applied sciences to understand and have access to the vast literature on applications of ionizing and non-ionizing radiation in materials research. Besides presenting the fundamental physics of radiation interactions, the book devotes individual chapters to some of the important modern-day experimental tools, such as nuclear magnetic resonance, photon correlation spectroscopy, and the various types of neutron, x-ray, and light-scattering techniques. End-of-chapter problems have been added for the new edition, making the book more appropriate as a course textbook.

|Theory of Nonequilibrium Superconductivity (International Series of Monographs on Physics)
Lowest new price: $116.70
Lowest used price: $45.95
List price: $180.00
Author: Nikolai B. Kopnin
This is the first text on the modern theory of superconductivity. It deals with the behavior of superconductors in external fields varying in time, and with transport phenomena in superconductors. The text starts with the fundamentals of the first-principle, microscopic theory of superconductivity, and guides the reader through the modern theoretical analysis to applications of the theory to practical problems. The methods of quantum field theory applied to nonstationary superconductivity in their most advanced formulations, namely the so-called semi-classical version of the real-time Green's function technique applied to the celebrated Bardeen, Cooper and Schrieffer model of superconductivity are described. A considerable part of the book is devoted to vortex dynamics, dealing with the behavior of superconductors when they carry electric currents in the presence of a magnetic field.

The perovskite family of oxides includes a vast array of insulators, metals, and semiconductors. Current intense scientific interest stems from the large number of diverse phenomena exhibited by these materials including pseudo two-dimensional electronic energy bands, high temperature superconductivity, metal-insulator transitions, piezoelectricity, magnetism, photochromic, and catalytic activity. This book is the first text devoted to a comprehensive theory of the solid-state properties of these fascinating materials. The text includes complete descriptions of the important energy bands, photoemission, surface states, and the chapter on high-temperature superconductors explores the electronic states in typical copper-oxide materials. Theoretical results are compared to experiment and discussed throughout the book. With problem sets included, this is a unified, logical treatment of fundamental perovskite solid-state chemistry which will appeal to graduate students and researchers alike.

|Computational Explorations in Magnetron Sputtering
Lowest new price: $19.00
List price: $19.00
Author: E. J. McInerney
Magnetron Sputtering is a widely used industrial process for depositing thin films. PVD films are found in everything from the moisture barriers in potato chip bags to the interconnects of modern semiconductor devices. This book walks you through the physics of Magnetron Sputtering in a step-by-step fashion. Starting with the magnetic fields crucial to efficient operation, the book then looks at the electric fields that power the sputter process, the motion of electrons in the plasma, target erosion and finally deposition. The reader is encouraged to explore this fascinating topic by actively following along. A series of simple computer models is developed, ultimately leading to predictive models of target erosion and deposition uniformity. By working through these models, readers can build their intuition of PVD processes and develop a deeper appreciation of the underlying physics.
|Thermal Conductivity: Theory, Properties, and Applications (Physics of Solids and Liquids)
Lowest new price: $193.98
Lowest used price: $194.08
List price: $249.99
It has been almost thirty years since the publication of a book that is entirely dedicated to the theory, description, characterization and measurement of the thermal conductivity of solids. The recent discovery of new materials which possess more complex crystal structures and thus more complicated phonon scattering mechanisms have brought innovative challenges to the theory and experimental understanding of these new materials. With the development of new and novel solid materials and new measurement techniques, this book will serve as a current and extensive resource to the next generation researchers in the field of thermal conductivity. This book is a valuable resource for research groups and special topics courses (8-10 students), for 1st or 2nd year graduate level courses in Thermal Properties of Solids, special topics courses in Thermal Conductivity, Superconductors and Magnetic Materials, and to researchers in Thermoelectrics, Thermal Barrier Materials and Solid State Physics.
|Tensor Network States and Effective Particles for Low-Dimensional Quantum Spin Systems (Springer Theses)
Lowest new price: $115.34
Lowest used price: $150.15
List price: $139.99
Author: Laurens Vanderstraeten
This thesis develops new techniques for simulating the low-energy behaviour of quantum spin systems in one and two dimensions. Combining these developments, it subsequently uses the formalism of tensor network states to derive an effective particle description for one- and two-dimensional spin systems that exhibit strong quantum correlations. These techniques arise from the combination of two themes in many-particle physics: (i) the concept of quasiparticles as the effective low-energy degrees of freedom in a condensed-matter system, and (ii) entanglement as the characteristic feature for describing quantum phases of matter. Whereas the former gave rise to the use of effective field theories for understanding many-particle systems, the latter led to the development of tensor network states as a description of the entanglement distribution in quantum low-energy states.
