NIST 62. NIST/NRIM High Temperature Superconductors Database: Version 2.0



R G. Munro


The database of materials properties provides evaluated property data for high temperature superconductors.The range of materials covers the many series of compounds derived from the Y-Ba-Cu-O, Bi-Sr-Ca-Cu-O, Tl-Sr-Ca-Cu-O and La-Cu-O chemical families, along with numerous other variants of the cuprate and bismuthate, and borocarbide materials that are known to have superconducting phases. The materials are described by specification and characterization information that includes processing details and chemicalcompositions. Physical characteristics such as resistivity and crystal structure are given in numeric tables.The material properties include superconductor characteristics (Tc, jc, Hc2,etc.), thermal properties (conductivity, expansion, specific heat), mechanical properties (elasticity, strength, toughness), and crystallography (cellparameters, atomic coordinates), methods, procedures, and conditions. Data have been collected from papers published in the years 1987-1996 and evaluated in terms of materials characterization and how experimentalconditions have been controlled. In all cases, the sources of the data are fully documented in a comprehensive bibliography.
