Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This special issue provides an up-to-date summary of high temperature superconductors: materials, characterization, properties, and issues related to their deployment. High Tc cuprates, borides, boro-carbides, and iron pnictide are among those materials discussed. Special emphasis is given to wire applications and related high-critical-current problems and solutions. The special issue consists of papers written by experts in the field, and is edited by one of the pioneering high Tc researchers.
