Summary

The book introduces scientists and graduate students to superconductivity, and highlights the differences arising from the different dimensionality of the sample under study. It focuses on transport in one-dimensional superconductors, describing relevant theories with particular emphasis on experimental results. It closely relates these results to the emergence of various novel fabrication techniques. The book closes by discussing future perspectives, and the connection and relevance to other physical systems, including superfluidity, Bose-Einstein condensates, and possibly cosmic strings.

Author Biography

Dr. Fabio Altomare is currently a Post Doctoral Research Associate at the National Institute of Standards and Technology in Boulder, where he is working on coupled superconducting phase qubits. He received his Ph.D. from Purdue University in 2004 studying superconductivity in 1-dimensional nanowire. Before his current appointment, he worked as Post Doctoral Research Associate at Duke University on dilute magnetic semiconductors. His interests include superconductivity in 1-dimension, transport in dilute magnetic semiconductor, and superconducting qubits.

Prof. Albert Chang is Professor at the Department of Physics at Duke University since 2004. He received his Ph.D. from Princeton University and spent most of his career at Bell Laboratories. Prior to his current appointment, he was professor at Purdue University. He has been an APS fellow since 2000 for experimental studies of quantum Hall edge states and Luttinger liquids. Current interests include transport in quantum dots and dilute magnetic semiconductors, superconductivity in 1-dimension, scanning hall probe microscopy, and fractional charges and statistics in the fractional quantum hall effect.
