After the Breakthrough: The Emergence of High-Temperature Superconductivity as a Research Field by Ulrike Felt,Helga Nowotny



Budapest and Vienna Helga Nowotny and Ulrike Felt. The phenomenon was confined to scientific laboratories until the late 1950s, when first technological applications became feasible.

The discovery of high-temperature superconductivity was hailed as a major scientific breakthrough, inducing an unprecedented wave of excitement and expectation among the scientific community and in the international press.

This book analyzes the remarkable discovery of high-temperature superconductivity and its aftermath. Particular attention is given to the new role played by the media.

By Helga Nowotny and Ulrike Felt. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1997. Pp. x+210; appendixes, notes, bibliography, index. Contrary to the impression given by the American press that the field originated in the United States, it was K. A. Muller and G. Bednorz at the IBM Laboratory in Zurich in 1986 who made the initial, and later Nobel Prize-winning, discovery of a new class of materials that exhibited superconductivity at temperatures.

The discovery of high-temperature superconductivity was hailed as a major scientific breakthrough, inducing an unprecedented wave of excitement and expectation among the scientific community and in the international press. This book sets this research breakthrough in context, and reconstructs the history of the discovery. The authors analyze the emergence of this new research field and the way its development was shaped by scientists and science policy makers. They also examine the various institutional and national settings in which the research was undertaken as well as considering the scientific backgrounds and motivations of researchers who entered the field following the original discovery.
