By Nikolai M. Plakida, A. N. Ermilov

High-Temperature Superconductors offers an updated and complete assessment of the houses of those attention-grabbing fabrics. a lot has been realized in regards to the habit and mechanism of this novel kind of superconductivity over the last 5 years, yet many questions stay unanswered. This e-book provides a useful survey so one can support scholars and researchers to consolidate their wisdom and construct upon it. a lot of illustrations and tables provide necessary details for experts. A serious comparability of alternative theoretical types related to powerful electron correlations, spin fluctuations, phonons and excitons offers a historical past for knowing sleek tendencies within the concept of high-temperature superconductivity.

Introductory Solid State Physics (Second Edition)

Assuming an ordinary wisdom of quantum and statistical physics, this ebook offers a finished advisor to primary actual homes of condensed subject, in addition to the underlying idea priceless for a formal figuring out in their origins. the subject material covers the primary good points of condensed subject physics, yet with specific accessory at the houses of steel alloys.

Multiscale Modeling: From Atoms to Devices

Whereas the appropriate good points and homes of nanosystems unavoidably rely on nanoscopic info, their functionality is living within the macroscopic international. To rationally enhance and effectively expect functionality of those structures we needs to take on difficulties the place a number of size and time scales are coupled. instead of forcing a unmarried modeling method of are expecting an occasion it was once no longer designed for, a brand new paradigm needs to be hired: multiscale modeling.

Mechanics and Physics of Porous Solids

Mechanics and Physics of Porous Solids addresses the mechanics and physics of deformable porous fabrics whose porous house is stuffed by means of one or a number of fluid combinations interacting with the cast matrix. Coussy makes use of the language of thermodynamics to border the dialogue of this subject and bridge the distance among physicists and engineers, and organises the cloth in one of these means that particular stages are explored, by way of coupled difficulties of accelerating complexity.

The interaction of copper spins in a plane is of two-dimensional nature. Their small value, S = 1/2, is the reason behind the important quantum fluctuations. In this respect, besides exploring the interplay of antiferromagnetism and superconductivity, the study of quantum two-dimensional antiferromagnets is of great interest in its own right. The first indications of the existence of antiferromagnetism in copper-oxide compounds were obtained on the basis of macroscopic measurements of susceptibility.

Experimental studies of the electronic structure of copper-oxide compounds (Sect. 4) show that, under doping, the holes appear at oxygen ions. 1). A considerable contribution to the destruction of the long-range order is also made by the motion of the hole on antiferromagnetic background. The kinetic energy of the hole is much larger than the exchange interaction Jnn (Sect.

E. the system of spins at copper sites in the CU02 plane with strong antiferromagnetic exchange coupling, and the strongly correlated system of holes at copper and oxygen sites in the same CU02 plane, is not yet quite clear. NMR studies show that a picture of a single one-component spin liquid made of strongly bound singlet states of two holes at copper and neighboring oxygen sites looks most plausible. 17).
