Open access peer-reviewed Edited Volume


Edited by Adir Luiz

Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

This book contains a collection of works intended to study theoretical and experimental aspects of superconductivity. Here you will find interesting reports on low-Tc superconductors (materials with Tc< 30 K), as well as a great number of researches on high-Tc superconductors (materials with Tc> 30 K). Certainly this book will be useful to encourage further experimental and theoretical researches in superconducting materials.
