Book Description

Devoted to the preparation, characterization and evaluation of HTS electronic devices, the Handbook of High-Temperature Superconductor Electronics provides information on using high-Tc thin films and junctions to increase speed, lessen noise, lower power consumption and enhance upper frequency limits in superconductor electronics. Compiled by a group of internationally renowned authors, it discusses the implementation of HTS digital circuits, microwave filters and subsystems and transition-edge bolometers. Other topics include cryocooler usage in high-Tc devices, HTS thin films for electronic devices, and the fabrication and applications of various HTS junctions.
