Abstract:

The conference was organized into sessions with two or three talks concentrating on a specific subject. Thus we had a session on new materials focusing on the structural richness of the high temperature superconductors and the possible implications for the critical currents and future applications. We also had a session on the new class of superconducting borocarbides and on heavy fermion superconductors. Several talks addressed experiments probing the nature of the microscopic superconducting state in the high temperature superconductors photo emission, specific heat, optical properties, neutron scattering, NMR, tunneling and Josephson devices. Other talks discussed the fascinating properties of the vortex states in these materials. Although the conference was, as earlier conferences in this series, mainly focusing on experimental investigations, a number of theoretical questions were also discussed, in particular the nature of the microscopic state and theoretical aspects of the vortex state. An evening session assessed the potential for future applications.
