Properties Of Perovskites And Other Oxides by Tom W. Kool

In this book some 50 papers published by K A Muller as author or co-author over several decades, amplified by more recent work mainly by T W Kool with collaborators, are reproduced. The main subject is Electron Paramagnetic Resonance (EPR) applied to the study of perovskites and other oxides with related subjects. This wealth of papers is organized into eleven chapters, each with an introductory text written in the light of current understanding. The contributions of the first editor on structural phase transitions have been immense, and because K A Muller and J C Fayet have published a review paper on the subject, the latter is reproduced in chapter VII. Not related to EPR is a part of chapter VIII on the dipolar and quantum paraelectric behavior with dielectric studies. In chapter X two papers proving the existence of Fermi glasses are reproduced.The year 1986 bears some significance: early in this year the paper by Bednorz and Muller on the possible observation of superconductivity was published. This resulted in a substantial shift in the paradigm of condensed matter physics, to which the present first editor has contributed scientifically with others and which will be reviewed in a second volume.


It is a pleasure to read such a systematic and historical overview, unifying various features of this area of research, all put into relation to each other by very helpful introductory comments by the authors. -- Ortwin Schirmer Professor of Experimental Physics, University of Osnabrueck It is very useful to have a systematic overview of the physics of perovskites. Surely the way it is represented is helpful for researchers in this field. -- Wim J A Maaskant Retired Professor in Theoretical Chemistry, Leiden University This collection of reprints allows the reader to chart the course of Muller's scientific development, from his early papers in the late 1950s all the way to high-temperature superconductivity in 1985. A particular highlight is Muller's work on the Jahn-Teller effect written in 1967 and appearing only as an article in a conference proceedings is a g -- Contemporary Physics Contemporary Physics
