Product description


This is a timely book which covers a very wide range of superconducting theory and applications. It deals with the basic physics of superconductors and vortices, the application to small and mesoscopic systems, and the properties of complete devices. The authors are all experts in their field and have reviewed the latest literature in their particular area. Professor Narlikar has extensive experience in editing this kind of book, and his background in materials research make him particularly well suited to put together an account of the various techniques needed to make and study these fascinating systems. Every laboratory working on superconductors on a small scale needs a copy of this book. (Prof. Archie Campbell, Department of Engineering, Cambridge)

About the Author

A.V. Narlikar has been active researcher in the field of superconductors for over 50 years. He received PhD and ScD degrees in this field from the University of Cambridge, UK. For nearly three decades Professor Narlikar headed the Superconductivity Division at the National Physical Laboratory, New Delhi, India. He is presently a senior scientist and a Fellow of Indian National Science Academy, working at UDCSR, in Indore. He is also a Visiting Scientist in the Applied Superconductivity and Cryoscience Group at the Department of Materials Science and Metallurgy, University of Cambridge, UK and at the Physics Department, University of Hamburg, Germany. Besides Superconductors, his active research interests are extended in nanoscience and SPM techniques. Professor Narlikar has contributed over 300 research papers to international refereed journals and has over 60 edited/authored books to his credit.
