Superconductivity and its applications

This course provides students with an approach to the fundamental understanding of the physical properties required for the practical implementation of superconducting materials. It includes

  • an introduction to electrodynamics of superconductors
  • a theoretical description of the interactions in the vortex line system, focused on pinning phenomena, critical state and thermal effects on vortex dynamics
  • an overview of the superconducting materials, addressing also the superconducting wires and cables
  • a final part describing the basic design and operation issues of superconducting device technology





Physics : Electromagnetism (Physique Générale C – printemps )
