  author={Soumya Datta and Sandeep Howlader and Arushi and Ravi Prakash Singh and Goutam Sheet},
The superconductors with the Ginzburg-Landau (G-L) parameter (κ) ∼ 1/ √ 2 exist near a critical Bogolomonyi (B) point where they show inter-type domains between type-I and type-II superconductivity. While such physics is well understood for isotropic superconductors, the experimental investigation of the physics of anisotropic superconductors near a critical B-point remains an unattained goal mainly due to the unavailability of model material systems. Theoretically, such superconductors are…

Introduction to Superconductivity

We have seen how the conductivity of a metal is limited by collisions, which determine the electron mean free path. After a collision, an electron completely loses all memory of its quantum state as

I and i

There is, I think, something ethereal about i —the square root of minus one, which seems an odd beast at that time—an intruder hovering on the edge of reality.
