High-Temperature Superconductivity in Perspective
Publisher: U.S. Government Printing Office 1990
Number of pages: 129
As the title suggests, this study attempts to put HTS in perspective, both in terms of competing technologies (e.g., the more mature low-temperature superconductors), and in terms of the many technical and economic problems that must be overcome before HTS can be widely used.

Superconductors differ fundamentally in quantum physics behavior from conventional materials in the manner by which electrons move through the material. It is these differences that give rise to the unique properties and performance benefits.

The book provides a basic introduction to one of the most innovative areas in condensed matter physics today. This book includes ample tutorial material, including illustrations, chapter summaries, graded problem sets, and concise examples.

In this introduction, I discuss theoretical aspects of superfluidity and superconductivity, mostly using a field-theoretical formalism. While the emphasis is on general concepts, I also discuss applications in low-energy and high-energy physics.

This book is a collection of the chapters intended to study only practical applications of HTS materials. You will find here the recent results of research on actual applications of HTS as well as possible future applications of HTS.
