1. “Superconductivity” by Charles

“Superconductivity” Book Review: The book has thorough descriptions of everything about the subject. The range of topics varies from classic materials to fullerenes. The book aims to make a balance between the range of topics it includes. The book does this while making them detailed and easy to understand. A broad reference list along with significant graphics from all areas of research given in the book are provided. Detailed explanations of theoretical approaches are given. Topics like high temperature superconductors and spectroscopy are given. Critical states, transport properties, and tunneling are also included. Superconductivity topic is covered both theoretically and experimentally.

2. “Introduction to Solid State Physics” by Charles Kittel

“Introduction to Solid State Physics” Book Review: This is a basic level book for students of physics. This is an easy to teach undergraduate level book. The book focuses more on physics as compared to formal mathematics.

3. “Experimental Techniques in Low Temperature Physics” by G K White

“Experimental Techniques in Low Temperature Physics” Book Review: The book is aimed to help physicists, physical chemists, metallurgists and engineers. The book includes topics like production and measurement of low temperatures. The handling of liquified gases on the laboratory scale is also included. It also has the principles and some details of the design of experimental crystats. This includes the problems of heat transfer and temperature control. The book presents physical data on heat capacities and expansion coefficients. The electrical and thermal conductivities of materials used in making low-temperature equipment are also presented.

4. “Superconductivity (Springer Series in Materials Science)” by R G Sharma
5. “Methodological Aspects of the Development of Low Temperature Physics” by Kostas Gavroglu and Yorgos Goudaroulis

“Methodological Aspects of the Development of Low Temperature Physics” Book Review: The book is written in a systematic method. This helps understanding the two most unusual problems of physics. Superconductivity and superfluidity are not only strange in their own right. They are the only macroscopic quantum phenomena. This book is the study of “most peculiar” phenomena in physics. The book describes the process to translate observed new phenomena into a physical problem.

6. “Low-Temperature Physics” by Christian Enss and Siegfried Hunklinger
7. “Low-Temperature Physics: an introduction for scientists and engineers” by P V E McClintock and D J Meredith

“Low-Temperature Physics: an introduction for scientists and engineers” Book Review: This book provides a plain and combined start to study of physics of matter at low temperatures. This is done in a way that it can be used by researchers and students alike. The book has been updated in it’s latest edition. It excludes all the outdated information that it previously contained.

8. “High-Temperature Superconductivity in Cuprates: The Nonlinear Mechanism and Tunneling Measurements” by A Mourachkine

“High-Temperature Superconductivity in Cuprates: The Nonlinear Mechanism and Tunneling Measurements” Book Review: This book aims to present the idea and mechanism of perconductivity. It also presents physics of superconductors. Analysis of tunneling measurements in cuprates is given in the last chapter. The book is for researchers and students.

9. “High-Pressure and Low-Temperature Physics” by J A Woollam and C W Chu

“High-Pressure and Low-Temperature Physics” Book Review: This book contains the original and review papers. These were presented at the Cleveland State University conference held from July 20 to 22,1977. The conference was on the physics of solids under high temperature and low pressure. The contents of this book cover the complete spectrum of current research in the physics of solids at high pressures and low temperatures.

10. “Photoemission Studies of High-Temperature Superconductors” by David W Lynch and Clifford G Olson

“Photoemission Studies of High-Temperature Superconductors” Book Review: This book provides a description of the photoelectron spectroscopic techniques. This book covers both theoretical and practical aspects of the topic. Areas of discussion include angle-resolved photoelectron spectroscopy of valence electrons. Core level spectra (XPS) is also discussed. There is inclusion of some special variations. These are resonance photo emissions. The book gives importance to difficulties that occur with the interpretation of such spectra. Difficulty in getting good sample surfaces of high resolution is also addressed. Expected future developments are outlined. The book is for graduate students and researchers. Physics, chemistry and materials science students can use it.
