IPB Colloquium by Milorad Milosevic

On Friday, 3 July 2015 at 12:00, in the hall "Zvonko Marić" of the Institute of Physics Belgrade,Prof. Dr. Milorad Milosevic (Department of Physics, University of Antwerp) will present a colloquium talk entitled:


Abstract of the talk:
In this talk, we will review the basics of superconductivity, textbook theory of superconductivity, and classification of superconductors based on their magnetic properties and vortical states. In the light of experimental data on newly discovered materials (particularly multiband/gap metal borides, iron chalcogenides and pnictides), but also some old and forgotten ones, we will argue that standard Ginzburg-Landau classification should be revised. Moreover, we will explain the theoretical framework in which this can be done analytically, and show that the missing class of superconductors is far more important than people choose to believe.
