Tunneling Spectroscopy of Conventional and Unconventional Superconductors

  • J. Zasadzinski

Abstract

Tunneling Spectroscopy: A review of tunneling spectroscopy is presented for conventional- and unconventional superconductors. This includes conventional phonon mediated supercondivity, superconductivity in the cuprates, heavy fermion superconductors and organic superconductors.
