Dissertation by Christopher T. Jones
Dissertation Title: Hybrid High Temperature Superconductor / Conducting Polymer Systems

Dedication from Summer of 1990

This work is first dedicated to my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, who walks beside me all the way as a real and personal friend. My wife, Carol Marie Jones, who has been by my side, helping me grow in knowledge and maturity, but mostly in love. I could not have finished this without her. My parents, Randy and Joyce Jones, who loved me without condition from the very start; who always treated me as a gift from God, even when I fell short. My life would not have been the same without their love. My sister, Stacy Wilson, who had to put up with her older brother over the years, and who has matured into a beautiful woman, compassionate nurse, loving wife, and tender mother of my niece, Anna Claire. Finally, to my uncle Buck, who has gone on to be with the Lord, for his love and guidance.


I would like to thank my supervising professor, Dr. John T. McDevitt, for his insight and direction.

Special thanks to Dr. David Riley and Dr. David Jurbergs for their advice and mentoring as well as friendship during my graduate studies.

I would also like to thank my former and present coworkers in the McDevitt lab: Sara Eames, Dr. Jianai Zhao, Dr. Rung-Kuang (Kate) Lo, Andrea Wells, Steve Savoy, Owen Lofthus, Dr. Brad Clevenger, Dr. J.P. Zhou, Brett Yamazi, Jim Grassi, Chris Ellis Jones, Jason Ritchie, Dr. Steven Haupt, Cyndi Wells, Bill Murray, Yebin Wang.

My appreciation to Dr. Kurt Bartelmehs and his co-author, Dr. Bob Downs, for use of their crystallographic software, XtalDraw, used to generate many of the crystal structures in this dissertation.
