100 Years of Superconductivity: Electromagnetic and Particle Detection and Readout
Kent D. Irwin, John Clarke
Superconductivity was found at the University of Leiden, The Netherlands, by Kamerlingh Onnes in 1911. Since then superconductivity has developed in to a modern science and technology that led to a number of Nobel prices and has applications that would be impossible without superconductors, e.g. the accelerators and detectors at CERN, the nuclear fusion experiment ITER and medical applications such as MRI or MEG. An international group of excellent scientists in the field of Applied Superconductivity, of Theoretical and Experimental Superconductivity and of the Material Science of Superconductivity has come together to write a book about the history and perspectives of Superconductivity, that intends to give a personal and scientific account of the historic developments and a preview what to expect from superconductivity in the years to come. Aim of this book is to give an impression to the non-specialized reader on how major research results in superconductivity were achieved, what the current status of superconductivity research is and what we can expect in the future - a personal tint of the authors should take this book out of the sphere of dry scientific monographs. Instead it should give a (global) overview over the field without being too specialized: so that also physics students and teachers should be capable of reading and enjoying it. It may thus also contain personal stories linked to achievements in the field.
