Properties of perovskites and other oxides by K. A Müller( )

8 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1,436 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book some 50 papers published by K A Müller as author or co-author over several decades, amplified by more recent work mainly by T W Kool with collaborators, are reproduced. The main subject is Electron Paramagnetic Resonance (EPR) applied to the study of perovskites and other oxides with related subjects. This wealth of papers is organized into eleven chapters, each with an introductory text written in the light of current understanding. The contributions of the first editor on structural phase transitions have been immense, and because K A Müller and J C Fayet have published a review paper on the subject, the latter is reproduced in chapter VII. Not related to EPR is a part of chapter VIII on the dipolar and quantum paraelectric behavior with dielectric studies. In chapter X two papers proving the existence of Fermi glasses are reproduced. The year 1986 bears some significance : early in this year the paper by Bednorz and Müller on the possible observation of superconductivity was published. This resulted in a substantial shift in the paradigm of condensed matter physics, to which the present first editor has contributed scientifically with others and which will be reviewed in a second volume

High Tc superconductors and related transition metal oxides : special contributions in honor of K. Alex Müller on the occasion of his 80th birthday by A Bussmann-Holder( )

4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 405 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book containing 30 articles written by highly reputed experts is dedicated to K. Alex Müller on the occasion of his 80th birthday. The contributions reflect the major research areas of K. Alex Müller which he activated in high temperature superconductivity and phase transitions. They are theoretical as well as experimental ones and focus mainly on high temperature superconductivity. A smaller part deals with ferroelectricity and their applications. Also in this field there have recently been major break throughs experimentally as well as theoretically which will be addressed by the invited authors. During the scientific career of K. Alex Müller he made major advances in the understanding of ferroelectricity, which used to be his major research field. The discovery of superconductivity in cuprates for which he received together with J. Georg Bednorz the Nobel Prize in 1987 has not diminished his interest in this area, but has enlarged his activities considerably

Structural phase transitions by K. Alex Müller( Book )

4 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 242 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The growth and maturity of research in structural phase transitions (SPT) make it an appropriate subject for the Topics in Current Physics series. The maturing pro cess is, however, by no means complete. New areas such as incommensurable SPT, quasi-low-dimensional systems, systems containing lattice disorder due to impuri ties or as mixed crystals, multicritical points, and quantum effects have recently come under focus. The understanding of the dynamics, be it microscopic soft-mode theory or critical dynamics, more specifically the central-peak problem, is also still quite incomplete. On the other hand, there are areas which are genuinely conso 1 ida ted. On the theoreti ca 1 s ide~ these concern symmetry properti es, Landau theory, and the application of static renormalization theory to critical phenomena., Also, the use of various complementary experimental techniques, with their specific merits, are well in hand. The field of STP's and of the various methods of investigation range so widely that it appeared appropriate to invite a number of scientists to review their respective areas of experti se to which they have made s i gnifi cant contri butions
Phase separation in cuprate superconductors : proceedings of the Second International Workshop on "Phase Separation in Cuprate Superconductors," September 4-10, 1993, Cottbus, Germany by E Sigmund( Book )

14 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The contributions to this book are written by leading experts, including Nobel prize winner K.A. Müller. The high-Tc cuprates are materials that become superconducting when chemically or optically doped. The nature of the resulting phase and the mechanism of the superconductivity have, until recently, posed numerous questions. However, many of the key experimental and theoretical problems are now being solved and it is largely these advances that are presented here

High-Tc copper oxide superconductors and related novel materials : dedicated to Prof. K.A. Müller on the occasion of his 90th birthday( )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Authored by many of the world's leading experts on high-Tc superconductivity, this volume presents a panorama of ongoing research in the field, as well as insights into related multifunctional materials. The contributions cover many different and complementary aspects of the physics and materials challenges, with an emphasis on superconducting materials that have emerged since the discovery of the cuprate superconductors, for example pnictides, MgB2, H2S and other hydrides. Special attention is also paid to interface superconductivity. In addition to superconductors, the volume also addresses materials related to polar and multifunctional ground states, another class of materials that owes its discovery to Prof. Müller's ground-breaking research on SrTiO3
High-Tc superconductivity 1996 : ten years after the discovery by Emanuel Kaldis( Book )

8 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After an introduction by J.G. Bednorz, describing the discovery of high Tc superconductivity and its consequences, the book goes on to describe modern research, dealing with general problems, new materials and structures, phase separation, electronic homogeneities and related problems, and applications. Specific systems dealt with include the La-cuprates. the Bi-cuprates and the Y-cuprates and related compounds

Proceedings of the Workshop on Phase Separation in Cuprate Superconductors, Erice, Italy, 6-12 May 1992 by Workshop on Phase Separation in Cuprate Superconductors( Book )

6 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The main objective of this workshop was to review and discuss the electronic and chemical properties of layered cuprate superconductors. These are doped antiferromagnetic (AFM) insulators, and there is the possibility of a dynamic phase separation into metallic clusters and AFM areas. A clarification on the existence and the mechanism of such a phase separation is believed to be crucial for the understanding of high T superconductivity in cuprates. On the one hand, theoretical and recent experimental indications in favor of this possibility were presented, on the other hand experimental papers expressing more skeptical views were also delivered. Related work on phase separations of chemical and structural origin was also included, followed by contributions on the question; iIf phase separation is present, what is the pairing mechanism in the metallic clusters?--

Structural phase transitions II by K. Alex Müller( Book )

2 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Structural Phase Transitions II, like its predecessor (Topics in Current Physics, Vol. 23), presents selected methods and recent advances in the experimental investigation of phase transitions in solids. The two chapters in this volume deal with electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR), and with nuclear magnetic and nuclear quadrupole resonance (NMR-NQR). Both techniques are particularly sensitive to local properties. The chapter on EPR concentrates largely on the investigation of static properties, including mean-field behaviour, critical and multicritical phenomena, whilst NMR is shown to be a powerful tool for studying nonlinear dynamics, incommensurate transitions, and disordered systems. This book will serve as an excellent introduction to the methodology and applications of EPR and NMR-NQR for all those wishing to become acquainted with these important tools for studying structural phase transitions
