Item description for New Superconductors: From Granular to High Tc by Guy Deutscher...

How new are the high Tc superconductors, as compared to the conventional low Tc ones? In what sense are these oxides different from regular metals in their normal state? How different is the mechanism for high Tc superconductivity from the well-known electron-phonon interaction that explains so well superconductivity in metals and alloys? What are the implications of the new features of the high Tc oxides for their practical applications? This book aims to give some answers to those questions, drawing particularly on similarities between the high Tc oxides and granular superconductors, which also present a maximum of their critical temperature near the metal-insulator transition.

Reviews - What do customers think about New Superconductors: From Granular to High Tc?

put high Tc superconductors into a conceptual framework  Sep 17, 2007
It's a relatively short overview of the theoretical and experimental status of superconductivity. The first part of the book goes into the traditional (and now known to be incomplete) BCS theory. But the main attraction of the book is how it attempts to place the high Tc superconductors within an overall framework of understanding.

The main class of high Tc superconductors discussed is the YBCO (Yttrium-Barium-Copper Oxides). Since the most work has been done on these. Results like the vortex pinning are shown. Along with critical phase transitions that turn off the superconductivity. Major efforts made to understand how to raise both the Tc and the current densities.

The BCS treatment is slightly cursory. If it's this you need, try perhaps an older book on superconductivity.

The narrative should be understandable to an undergrad physics major, at the level of 3rd or 4th year.
