Presents the first unified exposition of the physical principles at the heart of NanoMEMS-based devices and applications Provides newcomers with a much needed coherent scientific base for undertaking study and research in this field Takes great pains in rendering transparent advanced physical concepts and techniques, such as quantum information, second quantization, Luttinger liquids, bosonization, and superconductivity
Superconductivity was discovered 1911 by Kamerlingh Onnes. During the last century,
the history of superconductivity has been full of theoretical challenges and practical
developments. In 1986, the discovery of Bednorz and Müller of an oxide superconductor
with critical temperature (Tc) approximately equal to 35 K, has given a novel
impetus to this fascinating subject. Since this discovery, there are a great number of laboratories
all over the world involved in research of superconductors with high Tc
values, the so-called “high-Tc superconductors”....
The history of superconductivity is full of theoretical challenges and practical developments.
Superconductivity was discovered in 1911 by Kamerlingh Onnes. About 75
years after this breakthrough, in 1986, it has been synthesized by Bednorz and Müller,
an oxide superconductor with critical temperature (Tc) approximately equal to 35 K.
