Junji Haruyama, "Carbon-based Superconductors: Towards High-Tc Superconductivity"
English | ISBN: 9814303305 | 2014 | 300 pages | PDF | 29 MB
This book describes basic physics and the recent advancement of carbon-based superconductors (CBSCs), such as diamond, graphite, graphene, carbon nanotubes (CNTs), and others. The small mass of carbon atoms provides high phonon frequency, high Debye temperature, and chances to high superconducting transition temperature (Tc). Individual materials also provide different mechanisms and chances to high Tc. Consequently, it is highly expected that CBSCs will open the door to high-Tc superconductivity, for example, CuO2-based SCs.
