Description

Applied Superconductivity, Volume II, is part of a two-volume series on applied superconductivity. The first volume dealt with electronic applications and radiation detection, and contains a chapter on liquid helium refrigeration. The present volume discusses magnets, electromechanical applications, accelerators, and microwave and rf devices. The book opens with a chapter on high-field superconducting magnets, covering applications and magnet design. Subsequent chapters discuss superconductive machinery such as superconductive bearings and motors; rf superconducting devices; and future prospects in applied superconductivity. Each chapter in the two volumes can be read independently, and most assume very little or no background in the physics of superconductivity. The topics treated do not require the use of advanced quantum mechanics; thus the books should be accessible to students or research workers in any branch of engineering or physics. They are intended to serve both as a source of reference material to existing techniques and as a guide to future research.
