Solid-state physics: an introduction to theory and experiment

Front Cover
Springer-Verlag, 1991 - Science - 341 pages
This introduction to solid-state physics emphasizes both experimental and theoretical aspects of materials science. Three important areas of modern research are treated in particular detail: magnetism, superconductivity, and semiconductor physics. Experimental aspects with examples taken from research areas of current interest are presented in the form of separate panels. This novel format, highly praised by readers of earlier editions, should help to relate the theoretical concepts described in the text to important practical applications. Students will benefit significantly from working through the problems related to each chapter. In many cases these lead into areas outside the scope of the main text and are designed to stimulate further study.
