Abstract:

Measurements were made of the Kapitza resistance in tin and indium and its change at the superconducting transition. For comparison with theory, measurements were also made on the insulator, sapphire. An attempt to detect and electric field dependence of the Kapitza resistance in platinum had negative results. A new method for the preparation of Beta-tungsten compound superconductors, such as Nb3Sn, was developed. Both the properties of the deposited material and the extension of this method to such possible Beta- tungsten compounds as niobium germanide, niobium silicide, vanadium-gallium, vanadium silicide and niobium-gallium are described.
