Even 100 years after its discovery, superconductivity maintains to convey us new surprises, from superconducting magnets utilized in MRI to quantum detectors in electronics. 100 Years of Superconductivity provides a complete number of subject matters on approximately the entire subdisciplines of superconductivity. Tracing the historic advancements in superconductivity, the publication contains contributions from many pioneers who're answerable for very important steps ahead within the field.

The textual content first discusses fascinating tales of the invention and sluggish development of thought and experimentation. Emphasizing key advancements within the early Fifties and Nineteen Sixties, the publication appears at how superconductivity began to permeate society and the way such a lot of today’s functions are in response to the options of these years. It additionally explores the real revolution that happened with the invention of extreme temperature superconductors, resulting in rising functions in strength garage and fusion reactors.

Superconductivity has turn into an enormous box and this full-color publication indicates how some distance it has are available the earlier a hundred years. in addition to reviewing major learn and experiments, best scientists proportion their perception and stories operating during this intriguing and evolving area.
