Superconductivity: Present and Future Applications

Publisher: CCAS
Number of pages: 37

Description:
Superconductors differ fundamentally in quantum physics behavior from conventional materials in the manner by which electrons, or electric currents, move through the material. It is these differences that give rise to the unique properties and performance benefits that differentiate superconductors from all other known conductors.

As the title suggests, this study attempts to put HTS in perspective, both in terms of competing technologies (e.g., low-temperature superconductors), and in terms of the many technical problems that must be overcome before HTS can be widely used.

In this introduction, I discuss theoretical aspects of superfluidity and superconductivity, mostly using a field-theoretical formalism. While the emphasis is on general concepts, I also discuss applications in low-energy and high-energy physics.

Introduction to the phenomenological and qualitative theory of superconductivity. Nowhere any assumption on the microscopic mechanism of superconductivity is made although on a few occasions electron-phonon interaction is mentioned as an example.
