A focus of discoveries by Rudolf Peter Huebener( )

28 editions published between 2008 and 2015 in English and held by 2,496 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1887, the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB) was originally founded as the Physikalisch-Technische Reichsanstalt. (PTR) in Berlin in order to promote basic research in physics. It subsequently developed into the largest research center worldwide as a place where scientists could concentrate exclusively on their research subject, and served as a model for similar institutes established in other countries." "Within a very short time, the PTR produced extremely important scientific results that cemented its international position at the top, such as Max Planck's radiation law and energy quantization theory as well as Walther Meissner's discovery of the Meissner effect which represented a turning point in the field of superconductivity. This book describes the scientific and industrial milieu of the time, and explains in detail the role of the key people, including Albert Einstein's involvement with the PTR. A brief discussion on how the PTR was affected by the Nazi dictatorship in Germany is also given."--Jacket
Walther Nernst : pioneer of physics and of chemistry by Hans-Georg Bartel( )

18 editions published in 2007 in English and German and held by 1,510 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"More than 100 years ago, in 1905, Walther Nernst discovered the Third Law of Thermodynamics, thus completing this fundamental theory. In 1920 he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry. The book describes the life of this pioneer of science, his major stations being Graz, then Gottingen, and finally Berlin. Also presented is a lively account of the development of low temperature physics by Nernst during the early days of quantum theory, when he was in Berlin, closely associated with Albert Einstein, Max Planck, and Max von Laue." "The book outlines the specific advances achieved by Nernst in the thermodynamic concepts of theoretical chemistry. Written for a general readership, it can also serve as a supplement for courses in physics and chemistry. In addition to the role of science in the life of Nernst, the impact of the political turmoil in Germany before and after the advent of the 20th century is also told."--BOOK JACKET
Magnetic flux structures in superconductors by Rudolf Peter Huebener( Book )

26 editions published between 1979 and 2001 in English and held by 574 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The discovery of high-temperature superconductors in 1986 by Bednorz and Müller led worldwide to a rapid growth of the field of superconductivity. This new interest extends to both the fundamental aspects and the technological appli- cations of superconductors. The monograph "Magnetic Flux Structures in Superconductors" provided an introduction to this field, covering the developments up to its first publication in 1979. Soon after 1986 the book went out of print. However, it continues to be widely used and quoted, and due to the ever growing interest in "Magnetic Flux Structures in Superconductors", a second edition is now being made available. An extensive new chapter gives a comprehensive review of developments relevant to high-temperature superconductors. This new edition provides researchers, engineers and other scientists with an intro- duction to this field; it will also be useful as supplementary reading for graduate courses in low-temperature physics
