New research on YBCO superconductors.


New research on YBCO superconductors.

Ed. by David M. Friedman.

Yttrium barium copper oxide superconductors (YBCOs) were the first materials that could superconduct above the boiling point of nitrogen. As such, they are receiving a great deal of attention, as indicated by some of these nine articles and two commentaries. Articles address the formation of structurally disordered YBCO under milder conditions by using chemically activated reagents and nanoscale investigation techniques. Research and review articles include applications of bulk superconductors to synchrotron radiation sources, vortex theories of inhomogeneous superconductors, and means of establishing positions and constants of equilibrium in YBCO with oxygen. This does not include an academic affiliation for the editor, the audiences is not specified, and readers are urged to verify all data independently. Source of articles is unknown.
