Investigation of Possibilities for Raising the Critical Temperature of Superconductors

  • G. F. Zharkov


Much attention has been devoted recently to the problem of obtaining superconductors with high transition temperatures (see, e.g., the review articles of Refs. 1-3 and the literature cited therein). The most likely possibilities are connected with the use of nonphonon (namely electron or exciton) mechanisms of attraction between the conducting electrons. The term “exciton” is applied here to the wide variety of excitations caused by electrons in deeper atomic levels (other zones), in atoms or molecules of the impurities, in other parts of the system, etc.
