Superconductors (Type II), Kirkendall effect and elasticity of ultrathin films

November 23, 2007

Here are a few interesting papers published in the latest issue of Current Science:

  1. Hari Prasad Sharma on Type-II Superconductors, vortex lattice and (the) role of an Indian scientist (pdf);
  2. T N Narasimhan on the Energetics of the Kirkendall effect(pdf); and,
  3. C Srinivasan on a method based on wrinkle formation for the determination of elasticity and thickness of ultrathin films (pdf) (which is based on the same paper which set me into doing some kitchen sink experiments).

Take a look!
