Tc’s -- The High and Low of it

  • Bernd T. Matthias


Preface: The following manuscript was adapted from a tape recording of the lecture presented by Professor Matthias at the Conference, “The Science and Technology of Superconductivity” held at Georgetown University, August 1971. His hand drawings (blackboard drawings during lecture) are included here for clarity.
