  • Superconductivity was one of the greatest discoveries of 20th century physics, and the theory that emerged one of the most beautiful and extraordinary achievements in theoretical physics
  • Explains the many strange phenomena observed in superconducting materials
  • Explores the deep implications of superconductivity theory, and its potential to revolutionize the physics and technology of the future
  • Examines the very latest developments in high-temperature superconductivity, and the various and conflicting efforts to understand the phenomenon

 
Superconductivity is one of the most exciting areas of research in physics today. Outlining the history of its discovery, and the race to understand its many mysterious and counter-intuitive phenomena, this Very Short Introduction explains in accessible terms the theories that have been developed, and how they have influenced other areas of science, including the Higgs boson of particle physics and ideas about the early Universe. It is an engaging and informative account of a fascinating scientific detective story, and an intelligible insight into some deep and beautiful ideas of physics.

著者について: 

Stephen Blundell did his undergraduate degree in Physics and Theoretical Physics at Peterhouse, Cambridge and his Ph. D. in the Cavendish Laboratory at Cambridge. He moved to the Clarendon Laboratory at Oxford to take up an SERC research fellowship, followed by a Junior Research Fellowship at Merton College, where he began research in organic magnets and superconductors using muon-spin rotation. In 1997 he was appointed to a University Lectureship in the Physics Department and a Tutorial Fellowship at Mansfield College, Oxford, and was subsequently promoted to Reader and then Professor. He was a joint winner of the Daiwa-Adrian Prize in 1999 for his work on organic magnets. He has previously published Magnetism in Condensed Matter, (OUP 2001); and Concepts in Thermal Physics, (OUP 2006, with K.M. Blundell).
