ECS Professor contributes to Cambridge superconductivity centenary
A series of lectures on superconductivity produced by the University of Cambridge includes a contribution by ECS Professor Jan Sykulski.
The lectures are available on video online and have been produced to celebrate the centenary of the discovery of superconductivity in 2011. They provide an introduction to the fundamental characteristics and theories of superconductivity. The BCS and Ginzburg-Landau theories are discussed for conventional superconductors, and more recent developments including theories of high temperature superconductivity are introduced. The critical parameters, flux pinning behaviour and characterisation techniques are also covered.
Professor Sykulski's contribution is based on the electrotechnology of motors and generators.
