Beginning in mid-February 2008, the 1997-2007 online version of the Science Watch® newsletter, ESI-Topics.com, and in-cites.com, will all be featured together on the redesigned ScienceWatch.com. All previous content from the three sites will be permanently archived, and remain accessible from any existing bookmarks to the archived pages. No new content will be added to this site. Updates and new content (updated biweekly) are available at ScienceWatch.com now.

Superfluids

The baseline time span for this database is 1995-2005 (first bimonthly, January 1995-February 28, 2005). The resulting database contained 5,163 (10 years) and  1,373 (2 years) papers; 5,940 authors; 70 countries; 315 journals; and 1,306 institutions. Read the methodology used to create this special topic.

Overview

Superfluidity, a state of matter in which all of the atoms are in the same quantum state and can thus move without viscosity, has been the focus of researchers since its discovery in 1937 by Pyotr Kapitsa, John Allen, and Don Misener.

The literature in this area for the past decade shows a focus on superfluidity in Bose-Einstein condensates and helium. Other topics covered over the past 10 years include superfluidity in atomic trapped gases, lithium-6, and SR2RUO4; quantum phase transition from a superfluid to a Mott insulator; and the Infrared Space Observatory Mission, whose Ritchey-Chretien telescope was maintained by a system containing superfluid helium.

On our list of highly cited papers pertaining to superfluidity published in the past two years Bose-Einstein condensates continue to figure in many of the reports. Other hot topics include Fermi gases and optical lattices.

Methodology

To construct this database, papers were extracted based on topic-supplied keywords for Superfluids. The keywords used were as follows: 

superfluid*

The baseline time span for this database is 1995-2005 (first bimonthly, January 1995-February 28, 2005). The resulting database contained 5,163 (10 years) and  1,373 (2 years) papers; 5,940 authors; 70 countries; 315 journals; and 1,306 institutions.

Rankings

Once the database was in place, it was used to generate the lists of top 20 papers (two- and ten-year periods), authors, journals, institutions, and nations, covering a time span of 1995-2005 (first bimonthly).

The top 20 papers are ranked according to total cites. Rankings for author, journal, institution, and country are listed in three ways: according to total cites, total papers, and total cites/paper. The paper thresholds and corresponding percentages used to determine scientist, institution, country, and journal rankings according to total cites/paper, and total papers respectively are as follows:

Entity: Scientists Institutions Countries Journals
Thresholds: 20 19 18 26
Percentage: 1% 10% 50% 10%
