Special Topics in Condensed Matter Physics: Superconductivity and Superconductors
The course is divided into two main parts. In the first part, we will delve into the conventional theory of superconductivity, which includes topics such as superconducting pairing, electron-ion interactions, and elementary excitations. For this portion, we will be utilizing the book "Theory of Superconductivity" by Schrieffer as our primary reference. Additionally, we will explore the basic theory of spin-triplet superconductivity.
In the latter part of the course, students will have the opportunity to give presentations on recently discovered superconductors. This segment aims to keep us up-to-date with the latest developments in the field and foster discussions among the participants.
By the end of the course, students will have gained a solid foundation in both the conventional theory of superconductivity and the latest advancements in the study of superconducting materials.
