"In February 2008, Dr Hosono and coworkers broke the striking news that they had found a new superconductor, LaFeAsO1–xFx with Tc = 26 K. This news immediately spread out in the world, and soon after its Tc was increased to 55 K. This breakthrough rekindled the superconducting research, which was in the state of a dying fire after the discovery of Cu oxide superconductor in 1988 and MgB2 in 2001. This book presents a comprehensive review on the present status of Fe-pnictide superconductors, including the material, a variety of experimental results (photoemission, neutron scattering, NMR, etc.), theory, and so forth."

"This timely book covers important developments in both experiments and theory and provides a much needed summary of the recent efforts in this active area of research. It addresses the original arsenic-based compounds and the ideas proposed to understand their magnetic and superconducting properties, with a variety of results from neutrons, photoemission, optics, nuclear magnetic resonance, and other techniques. The balance between early and recent developments establishes this book as an excellent source of information for both beginners and advanced researchers."
Prof. Elbio Ruben Dagotto - University of Tennessee, USA
"The timely appearance of the first review volume on iron-based superconductors will greatly promote research on this exciting subject. The authors’ undisputable expertise guarantees its lasting value. It will serve as the primary reference for research students and all newcomers to this thriving field."
Prof. Lu Yu - Chinese Academy of Sciences, China
The discovery of superconductivity above 50 K in Fe-pnictides/chalcogenides has broken the "monopoly" of high-temperature superconductivity in cuprates, and generated tremendous interests in the scientific community. During the past four years, considerable progresses have been made in materials synthesis and explorations, physical properties measurement and theoretical understandings. Compared with cuprate superconductors, iron-based superconductors are much more flexible, and have many different parent compounds. Superconductivity could be achieved with either hole or electron-doping, isovalent substitution, application of pressure, or chemical intercalations.
From fundamental physics point of view, iron-based superconductors have properties that are more amenable to band structural calculations. That is allowing for quantitative comparison with experiments. In addition, iron-based superconductors may have intrinsic properties favourable for applications, such as insensitive to impurities, large and isotropic upper critical fields, and strong grain boundaries.
The book aims to review the progresses made in this fascinating field. All invited contributors are world leading experts in the particular subjects of the field. There is no such review book available up to now. It is a good guide for understanding materials, physical properties, and superconductivity mechanism aspects, and is important for students and beginners to have an overall view of the recent progress in this active field.
