Physical Properties of Cuprate Superconductors: An Introduction

  • B. Batlogg
Part of the Springer Series in Solid-State Sciences book series (SSSOL, volume 106)


An introductory overview is given over experiments in the field of cuprate superconductivity. The selection focuses on basic crystal-chemical aspects, spin dynamics and charge response in the normal state, and essential microscopic aspects of the superconducting state, including length scales, gap spectroscopies and order parameter symmetry.
