Jump to navigation Jump to search

The table below shows some of the parameters of common superconductors of simple structure. X:Y means material X doped with element Y, TC is the highest reported transition temperature in kelvin and HC is a critical magnetic field in tesla. "BCS" means whether or not the superconductivity is explained within the BCS theory.
