      This book is a MUST for eveyone seriously interested in lunar exploration. Since Wendell Mendells generatuion-inspiring lunar base document, this is the most complete overview on technical and non-technical aspects of the selenological s: 7. Even on our Moon superconductivity could be used in the permanent shadows of craters when the temperature is constantly very low, also during the 2 week luna nights again when the surface temperature drops to minus C ( Kelvin) as mercury barium calcium copper oxide (HgBa2Ca2Cu3O8) becomes a superconductor at around K.

      The application of superconductors to rotating machines began in the late s following the availability of multi-filamentary NbTi superconductors. Since these superconductors were suitable for carrying only dc, the first applications were envisioned for replacing dc field windings in rotating machines.

This book introduces the physics and applications of transport in such mesoscopic and nanoscale electronic systems and devices. The behaviour of these novel devices is influenced by numerous effects not seen in bulk semiconductors, such as the Aharonov–Bohm Effect, disorder and localization, energy quantization, electron wave interference.

This is the first of a seven part series on the potential applications of superconductivity in space.

The series considers six classes of superconducting instrumentation for space applications; high field magnets, low frequency sensors, digital electronics, microwave and infrared detectors, instruments for gravitational studies, and high-O cavities.

This book includes coverage of several categories of medium and high-temperature superconducting materials: cuprate oxides, borides, and iron-based chalcogenides and pnictides. Provides a single-source reference on superconducting materials growth, characterization and processing.
