Bardeen-Cooper-Schrieffer Theory of Superconductivity Papers Now Open Access
Thanks to Mary C. Schlembach, Assistant Engineering Librarian and Physics and Astronomy Librarian at the University of Illinois for this note...
From the American Physical Society...
To honor the 50th anniversary celebration of the Bardeen-Cooper-Schrieffer Theory of Superconductivity being held Oct 10-13 at the Univ. of Illinois, the APS has made the three original BCS papers "Free-to-Read":
- Bound Electron Pairs in a Degenerate Fermi Gas (L.N. Cooper, Phys. Rev.104, 1189 (1956))
- Microscopic Theory of Superconductivity (J. Bardeen, L.N. Cooper, and J. R. Schrieffer, Phys. Rev. 106, 162 (1957))
- Theory of Superconductivity (J. Bardeen, L. N. Cooper, and J. R. Schrieffer, Phys. Rev. 108, 1175 (1957))
We are honored to have published these seminal works that have become the basis for many important technological developments.
