Introduction to superconductivity by Michael Tinkham( Book )

83 editions published between 1973 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 1,311 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Using the simplest and most physically intuitive arguments and methods, Introduction to Superconductivity exposes not only graduate students but professionals in academe and industry to the breadth and richness of the phenomenon of superconductivity. Applications as well as fundamental principles are thoroughly covered. The author not only views superconductivity as a macroscopic quantum state, as described by the Ginzburg-Landau phenomenological equation, but also recognizes that the fundamental entity is the paired electrons of the microscopic theory of Bardeen-Cooper-Schrieffer." "Special features include a treatment of varied phenomena in a simple way which keeps the microscopic theory of BCS in the background, and a thorough discussion of magnetic properties of type II superconductors, including dissipative effects and the use of twisted multifilamentary wires. After treating the fundamentals of the Josephson effects, an analysis is given of how the popular RF-biased SQUID magnetometer works. An extensive discussion of fluctuation effects is also included." "Major changes in this new edition include the following: new chapter on high temperature superconductors; updated and expanded discussion of the Josephson effect; new chapter on the Josephson effect in mesoscopic junctions; new chapter on nonequilibrium superconductivity; introductory treatment of electrodynamics in London theory level; and the deemphasis of nonlocal electrodynamics." "The level of treatment presumes a background in Solid State Physics and Basic Quantum Mechanics and avoids the use of Thermal Green's Functions."--Jacket

Effect of magnetic field on thermal conductivity and energy gap of superconducting films by D. E Morris( Book )

1 edition published in 1961 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The change in the thermal conductivity of superconducting tin and indium films was measured upon application of a magnetic field in the plane of the film. These experiments were undertaken to explore the dependence of the energy gap and the penetration depth upon magnetic field, and to determine the thermodynamic order of the field-induced superconducting transition in films

The specific project demonstrates the photon-assisted tunneling process across the Coulomb blockade energy gap in mesoscopic tunnel junctions. Photon-assisted tunneling is well established in conventional macroscopic tunnel junctions, and forms the basis of very sensitive millimeter wave detectors for astrophysics applications. In this case, the photon supply the energy needed to tunnel in the presence of the superconducting energy gap, which is a single-particle property. We are trying to see if the same Tien-Gordon formalism that describes this process can also be applied to the case of the Coulomb blockade, where the energy barrier stems from the charging energy of an electron on a mesoscopic metallic island, which is a collective properly of the configuration, not of a single electron's energy levels
