B Appendix B Survival kit for superconductivity

This survival kit is intended to provide basic knowledge of superconductivity necessary for understanding the material of the book. We recommend Refs. [41], [56], and [183] to the reader who wishes to acquire a deeper understanding of superconductivity concepts.

B.1 Basic facts

•  Below a certain temperature Tc (the superconducting transition temperature), the electrical resistance of some metals vanishes. In particular, the most commonly used superconductors are aluminum and niobium; alkali, noble, and magnetic metals never become superconducting. The highest transition temperature found ...
