Section Description

SUPERCONDUCTIVITY, ANCIENT AND MODERN, PART 2. SC2 covers the various classes of superconductors which do not appear to fit well into the BCS scheme: heavy-fermion systems, fullerenes, organics. ruthenates, ferropnictides, and above all, the cuprate (high-temperature) superconductors. In the case of the last, as well as describing the experimental properties, the course will attempt to survey some of the principal themes in current theoretical work, without committing to any specific model. SC1 and SC2 are modules which can, if desired, be taken individually (though SC2 alone is recommended only for students with substantial previous exposure to the theory of superconductivity). Register for SC1 or for SC2 or for both SC1 and SC2. SC2 meets in the second half of the semester.
