Oxide superconductors: a Chemist’s View
Oxide superconductors are at the crossroad between physics, chemistry and engineering, but their typical language is the language of solid state physics. It is the aim of this presentation to show that point of view and language of chemistry are valuable tools (in addition to those of solid state physics) for understanding some basic aspects of the science of oxide superconductors and, conversely, that this science gives outstanding challenges to chemistry.
