Superconductors is neither about basic aspects of superconductivity nor about its applications, but concentrates mainly on superconducting materials. It is not an encyclopaedia, describing each and every superconductor that exists. Instead, it is about those materials that have represented important milestones in this exciting field, because of their fundamental scientific interest, their technological applications, or the challenges they present (e.g. the magnetic superconductors). The features of a large variety of novel superconductors are presented and their technological potential is asse ... More

Keywords: superconductors, conventional superconductors, unconventional superconductors, high-temperature superconductors, low-temperature superconductors, HTS cuprates, superconducting pnictides, magnetic superconductors
