Superconducting Nanomaterials

Superconductivity is an important physical property of materials that occur at the nanoscale. As one can imagine, the applications of achievable superconductivity are significant, potentially changing the electronics world we know today. In this chapter, the physical principles of superconductivity are discussed, and how researchers are now using principles of nanotechnology to increase the superconductivity temperature of many materials.
