Designed for the one-term modern physics course taken primarily by science and engineering majors, this text adopts a calculus-based approach and introduces the student to both quantum and nuclear physics. The book covers the major topics of modern physics but also provides a survey of earlier work that paved the way for modern physics. The book provides extensive treatment of relativity and detailed and comprehensive coverage of nuclear and atomic physics. It covers technical applications of physics including radioisotopes in medicine, archaeology, and industry, NMR imaging in medicine, applications of superconductivity, nuclear accelerators and radiation detectors, and semiconductor devices.
