Superconductors and Superconductivity
The phenomenon of superconductivity in materials offers great opportunities for fundamental and applied sciences. Application of superconducting material in measuring devices, medical diagnostics, in space and energy industries and transport, is only a short list of possible use of the phenomenon of superconductivity in everyday human activity.
The special collection “Superconductors and Superconductivity” consists of papers published by Trans Tech Publications Inc. from 2010 up to 2015 and covers a wide range of advanced achievements in the field of applied research and applied application of superconductors in different branches of engineering.
Compiled scientific papers are presented in two chapters:
Chapter 1: Superconductors: Properties and Production Technologies
Chapter 2: Practice of Using Superconductors and Superconductivity
Keywords: Properties and Production Technologies, Solid-State Reaction, Superconductor Characterization Techniques, Microstructure, High Temperature Superconductor, Critical Temperature
Review from Ringgold Inc., ProtoView: This collection reprints about 150 papers that Trans Tech Publications originally published from 2010 to 2015 on properties and production technologies of superconductors and the practice of using superconductors and superconductivity. The topics include how cracking the coated layer of coated composite superconductors influences the critical current, investigating the two-component behavior of cuprate superconductors with nuclear magnetic resonance shifts, the critical temperature of two-band superconductors with a pseudogap, the magnetization method for designing bulk multi-seeded high-temperature superconductors, and a design and simulation experiment study on reconfigurable spacecraft base on a flux pinned interface.
