Editorial Reviews


the book is a retrospective chronicling 100 years of serendipitous discoveries and intellectual triumphs—and technological breakthroughs that Onnes could not have imagined in 1911. … From start to finish, the book includes historical vignettes, provides a comprehensive introduction to the science and technology behind a wide range of applications, and presents authoritative and often personal accounts of specialists in the field. The insights and anecdotes captured in 100 Years of Superconductivity will be a delight to those engaged in the field and a significant resource to historians.
—Richard Kautz, Physics Today, July 2012

"Students entering the field and working scientists who use or want to use the technology will benefit from the many points of view. Specialists may also find this large compendium a useful reference. Historians of science and technology will probably find the volume of permanent value as a snapshot of the field at the century mark. Summing Up: Highly recommended."
— CHOICE Magazine, July 2012
