Solid State and Superconductivity Abstracts

Solid State and Superconductivity Abstracts provides global coverage on all aspects of theory, production, and application of solid state materials and devices - as well as the new high- and low-temperature superconductivity technology, now highlighted in every issue. Some of the topics covered are phase, crystal, and mechanical properties of solids, optical and dielectric properties, conductive and magnetic properties, exotic electronic structure and energy gaps, SQUIDs, impurity effects, flux structures and critical current, ceramics, twinning phenomena, and more. This database provides international coverage as well as coverage of numerous non-serial publications.

Sources covered include over 3,000 periodicals, conference proceedings, technical reports, trade journal/newsletter items, patents, books, and press releases.

Subject Coverage
    Major areas of coverage include:
    • Applied Physics
    • Atomic and Molecular Physics
    • Condensed Matter Physics
    • Plasma Physics
    • Nuclear and High-Energy Physics
    • Mathematics of Physics
    • Superconductors
    • Semiconductors
    • Solid State Milieux
Dates of Coverage
    Approximately 1981-current. The oldest record in the database has a publication date of 1970; about 50% of its records have publication dates of 1992 or later.
Update Frequency
    Once a month. Approximately 40,000 new records are added per year.
    Over 1,493,514 records as of August 2013
    The database is indexed using a master authority file of about 40,000 controlled-vocabulary terms. Older records in this database were indexed using a file-specific thesaurus; this thesaurus has now been incorporated into the master authority file.

    AB: Abstract
    Thermodynamic and diffusion models were developed to describe the morphological evolution of the diffusion zone during interaction between inorganic materials. The application of these models is demonstrated for a number of metal/metal and metal/ceramic systems.
