The publication of Volume V of Physical Properties of High Temperature Superconductors is expected in March, 1996. It will have chapters of interest for both fundamental studies and applied research. The topics discussed are expected to include the electromagnetic response (penetration depth and surface resistance), local lattice distortions, the influence of vortex fluctuations on macroscopic behavior, the properties of superlattices, and the symmetry of the superconducting order parameter.
Penetration depth and surface resistance, D.A. Bonn and W. Hardy; microstructure and its influence of macroscopic properties, D.C. Larbelestier and A. Gurevich; local lattice distortions, T. Egami and S.J.L. Billinge; vortex-fluctuation effects on magnetization, Q. Li; symmetry of the superconducting order parameter, J.F. Annett, N.D. Goldenfield and A.J.Leggett; effects of electronic irradiation, J. Giapintzakis; superlattices, I. Bozovic.
