Spectroscopy of High-Tc Superconductors

Spectroscopy Of High Tc Superconductors: A Theoretical View


Despite ten years of intensive research, many questions remain unanswered concerning the nature of the electronic structure (Fermi vs non-Fermi liquid) and mechanisms of superconductivity. Spectroscopy of High-Tc Superconductors, A Theoretical View provides a current, comprehensive review of the experimental results and theoretical interpretations concerning elementary excitation spectra (electronic, phononic, charge, and spin fluctuations) in high-Tc superconductors (HTSC). It discusses accepted microscopic models that describe the electronic structure of the copper-oxide plane - the three-band model, the generalized Emery model, the one-band Hubbard model, different kinds of the t-J model, and the regular Kondo-lattice model - and compares them with ARPES experiments. Leading Russian researchers also consider experimental results obtained by Raman scattering both by phonons and electronic excitations, including magnetic excitations in antiferromagnets in the normal phase, on almost all the types of superconducting cuprates. The results are treated theoretically with the emphasis on features thought to be related to superconductivity. The book also gives an account of the properties of the microwave surface impedance and complex conductivity as functions of temperature common for high-quality single crystals: YBCO, BSCCO, TBCCO, and BKBO. The basics of the muon method and a review of experimental results for superconducting states of different HTSC-compounds are also presented.By offering a thorough examination of current research in the field, this book will appeal to advanced students and researchers working in superconductivity and theoretical condensed matter physics.

  • New: Mint condition or still sealed (SS). Absolutely perfect in every way. New.
  • Fine/Like New (EX): No defects, little sign of use, well cared for. Plays perfectly. Close to new. Not necessarily sealed or unused, but close. Could be an unopened promotional or cut item. Sometimes called: mint-minus.
  • Very Good (VG): Will show some signs that it was played and otherwise handled by a previous owner who took good care of it.
  • Good (G): Attractive and well cared for, but no longer fresh. Minor signs of wear, scuffing or scratching, but will play almost perfectly. For vinyl: barely detectable crackles or pops.
  • Fair (FR): This item is in okay condition. For vinyl: good is not so good and the record may have low level crackles or pops when playing. CD: one or more tracks may skip.
  • Poor (P): Obviously well-worn and handled. Most vinyl collectors will not buy good or below, but some tracks on CD or vinyl will play.
