Drawing from the huge spectrum of phenomena, defined in additional than 100,000 articles on high-Tc superconductivity, during this e-book, the authors study these simple homes for which figuring out might be accomplished in the framework of conventional tools of theoretical physics.
this can be the case of the overdoped cuprates for which the "Bardeen software" has been discovered: we all know their digital spectrum, we will be able to calculate their uncomplicated thermodynamic and electrodynamic houses, and expect new phenomena. The e-book provides a pedagogical derivation of formulation describing the electron band constitution, penetration intensity, particular warmth, fluctuation conductivity, and so forth. Prediction of plasmons and their software for a brand new form of THz turbines is taken into account besides.
The publication advocates that the most powerful trade interplay in condensed subject physics -- the intraatomic s-d trade -- is the lengthy sought pairing mechanism in overdoped cuprate superconductors.
