High-Temperature Superconductors: Occurrence, Synthesis and Applications

"The book provides information of the state of art concerning the latest developments in the field of high-Tc Superconductors. The book consists of 19 chapters summarizing the recent advances in materials science of high-Tc superconductors, including their physical properties, novel processing routes, and applications. The special emphasis was placed on recent upcoming superconducting applications, especially their importance for transport, health care, automobile etc. In addition to the primary processing for the large grain bulk RE-123 and the flux pinning properties, several different approaches on a large variety of materials like nanowire network fabrics, bulk C-doped MgB2, silver-added, bulk FeSe, and (BiPb)SrCaCuO systems showed progress towards novel applications. The book also covered the new developments concerning the large scale applications of bulk materials, including magnetic bearings, superconducting electric motors and their design layouts, hybrid-type superconducting magnetic bearings for rotating machinery, compact magnetic field generators, refrigerators, and recent developments in the application of superconducting super-magnets in the medical field etc. In this way, the book provides vignettes from a broad range of the most recent developments. So, worldwide updates to the field of superconductivity are focused in single book form, which provides very important information for the superconductivity community" - Masato Murakami, President of Shibaura Institute of Technology, Japan
