2nd lecture on nanowire theory at IQC

2nd lecture was joyful and full of my simple derivations.

I talked about two fluid model of Gorter and Casimir and derived many interesting things including the temperature dependence of penetration depth. Then derived deviations of penetration depth from that of London in non-local type II pure superconductors.  After that I derived penetration depth for thin film for the two cases of parallel and perpendicular magnetic fields.   A little touch on Ginzburg-Landau theory and derived their equation, then talked about the physical meaning of parameters.

Students (and postdocs) were happy and had plenty of high quality questions. They are very sharp! Looking forward for the 3rd lecture on Monday!
