Author: Richard A. Klemm

Since the discovery by the author and collaborators of superconductivity in the first truly layered compound, TaS2(pyridine)1/2, there have been many types of layered superconductors. These include the graphite intercalation compounds, the transition metal dichalcogenides, the intercalated transition metal dichalcogenides, the organic layered superconductors, the high-temperature cuprates, the various types of artificial multilayers, strontium ruthenate, magnesium diboride, the ternary intermetallics, the quaternary intermetallics or borocarbides, the iron pnictides and oxypnictides, the iron chalcogenides, and the intercalated metal nitride halides. In the development of this huge field, an underlying theme has always been to try to develop a room-temperature superconductor. Since most of the superconductors with the highest transition temperatures are layered, this book compares and contrasts the wide variety of materials and their properties. It should serve as a guide for young experimentalists hoping to make a room-temperature superconductor.

In addition, the book presents the three classes of phenomenological theoretical descriptions of layered superconductors: the anisotropic London model, the anisotropic Ginzburg-Landau model, and the Lawrence-Doniach model specifically developed to treat layered superconductors. Calculations using these models for the upper and lower critical fields are presented in detail, accessible to graduate students wanting to learn the basics of widely-used theoretical descriptions.

Author: NFPA (National Fire Prevention Association)

Update to the new authority on safety requirements for power, telecommunications, cable TV, and railroad signal systems -- the 2012 NESC®. The National Electrical Safety Code® provides practical guidance to help safeguard employees and the public from hazards during the installation, operation, and maintenance of electric supply and communication lines and associated equipment. It covers a broad range of areas including storage batteries, transformers and conductors to switchgear, circuit breakers, physical clearances, cable terminations, safety warning signs, and protective clothing for workers installing electrical equipment. Revisions to the 2012 NESC include: Scope, application, and definitions have been revised for improved clarity, particularly with respect to whether the NESC or the National Electrical Code® applies in certain situations. Grounding rules added specificity to the methods used to help achieve effective grounding connections. Electrical supply stations rules added options for improved protection of energized parts from interference by activities outside the stations and rules for guarding inside the stations. Underground rules revised the inspection rules and clarified requirements for direct-buried cables and conduits not part of a conduit system. Work rules added options for determining appropriate arc ratings for apparel to be worn while working on energized lines. Minimum approach distances (MADs) were revised to meet the requirements of IEEE 516(TM)-2009, and specification for the location of employee protective grounds was revised.

Lowest used price: $73.80
List price: $125.00

In the Li-ion battery, Ions’ transportation between positive and negative electrodes relies on organic-based electrolyte with a low flammable point. Therefore, use of this type of electrolyte lead to a lot of safety issues. In addition, the potential window of commercially available organic electrolyte is only up to about 4.5V, resulting that those cathode materials with high potentials cannot be used. Therefore, it is important to address above issues by developing multi-electron electrode materials, explore new nonflammable electrolyte and new battery formats. 
This book compiles nine comprehensive contributions from the principle of Li-ion batteries, cathode and anode electrode materials to future energy storage systems such as solid electrolyte for all-solid-state batteries and high capacity redox flow battery. The chapters provide the reader with comprehensive understanding of the fundamentals of energy storage through Faradic and non-Faradic mechanisms and most importantly materials and devices for future energy storage.

This book introduces some of the key ideas of this exciting field, using a pedagogic approach, and presents a comprehensive overview of the field. It is divided into four parts. The first part introduces the basic concepts of microwave cavities for particle acceleration. The second part is devoted to the observed behavior of superconducting cavities. In the third part,general issues connected with beam-cavity interaction and the related issues for the critical components are covered. The final part discusses applications of superconducting cavities to frontier accelerators of the future, drawing heavily on the examples that are in their most advanced stage. Each part of the book ends in a Problems section to illustrate and amplify text material as well as draw on example applications of superconducting cavities to existing and future accelerators.
