Fundamental Considerations of Superconductors at Microwave Frequencies
This chapter presents a fundamental analysis of the interaction of electromagnetic waves with superconducting materials. This presentation is based on simple electromagnetic theory and provides a basic understanding of the physical phenomenon involved. The model developed is of considerable practical use and is the basis for many calculation of the performance of superconducting devices at high frequency.
