Section Description

SUPERCONDUCTIVITY, ANCIENT AND MODERN, PART 1. SC1 is devoted to "classical" superconductivity and its explanation in terms of the BCS theory; it focuses on the basic nature of the superconducting state and its microscopic properties. SC1 and SC2 are modules which can, if desired, be taken individually (though SC2 alone is recommended only for students with substantial previous exposure to the theory of superconductivity). Register for SC1 or for SC2 or for both SC1 and SC2. SC1 meets in the first half of the semester.
