Editorial Reviews

"This is an excellent book for young researchers whowant to get a clear knowledge about low-temperature measurements andexperimental techniques, magnetic applications, and superconductivity. . Thisbook can be useful for master's level students, and to some extent forbachelor's level students as a reference for the fundamentals ofsuperconductivity, applications, and designs of superconducting. I stronglyrecommend this book to all scientists interested in superconductivity." (K.Kamala Bharathi, MRSBulletin, Vol. 40, September, 2015)
