This book outlines state-of-the-art studies in the spectroscopy for exotic superconductors, those that exhibit high temperature superconducting transitions or that cannot be explained by traditional theories. It describes a range of analytic tools, including Raman and ultrafast spectroscopy, photoconductivity, microwave resonance, magnetotransport and X-ray diffraction, and emission Mossbauer spectroscopy. The book draws from both fundamental and applied viewpoints and includes extensive references and detailed descriptions of physical properties. It includes important new research on the vibrations of the oxygen sublattice and on the application of superconductor assemblies to optical devices. Written by solid-state chemists and physicists, the book is accessible to a broad audience of scientists, engineers, and graduate students interested in condensed matter physics.

Industry Reviews

"This book brings together the research presented at the 1998 Symposium on Applications of Spectroscopy to Superconducting Materials held in Dallas. It offers an overview of important spectroscopic techniques applied to superconducting materials. Some techniques covered in its 18 chapters are Raman
scattering, infrared absorption. X-ray photoelectron and Auger spectroscopy, time-resolved spectroscopy, microwave plasma resonance, Md"ossbauer spectroscopy, photoconductivity, and point-contact spectroscopy." -- Journal of the American Chemistry Society, Vol 122, Number 27, p6526
