Superconductivity at High Pressures

  • J. L. Olsen


The investigation of the interaction of various external and internal parameters on the superconducting properties of a substance has been one of the most successful of the techniques leading to our present understanding of superconductivity. There is a wide range of properties one might investigate. The more obvious ones are: whether the substance is superconducting at all; the transition temperature T c ; the critical magnetic field H c ; and the Ginzburg-Landau parameter κ. This list can obviously be extended, but in our present note we shall only deal with T c , H c , and κ.
