Photography is a well-known example of changing a material by exciting it with light. This book examines a special case of a more general approach, which uses new lasers or electron beams to address some of the current needs emerging in microelectronics, photonics, and nanotechnology. It analyzes the important features of the changes induced by electronic excitation, identifies what is critical, and provides a basis from which materials modification can be developed successfully. It addresses ideas such as energy localization and charge localization, with detailed comparisons of experiment and theory. It also identifies the ways this understanding links to technological needs, such as selective removal of material, controlled changes, altering the balance between process steps, and possibilities of quantum control. This book will be of particular interest to research workers in physics, chemistry, electronic engineering and materials science.

Book Description:

Photography is a well-known example of changing a material by exciting it with light. This book examines a special case of a more general approach, which uses new lasers or electron beams to address some of the new needs emerging, especially in microelectronics, photonics (lasers and optical fibres) and nanotechnology. It looks at the basics, establishes the important concepts, and examines how these new approaches might be important in emerging technologies. It will be of particular interest to research workers in physics, chemistry, electronic engineering and materials science.

Review:

'What are the essential characteristics of this book? First, it is right up to date and accurate; second, it is interestingly written with all basic concepts at least mentioned. Last, but not least, the book shows how important the co-working of theory and experiement is. Without both of these our understanding of science would be very much lacking.' Materials Today

'This book will be of particular interest to research workers in physics, chemistry, electronic engineering and material science. It is excellent also from the side of print and design. The price looks high, but it is at the same time an educational book, a handbook, as well as a reference tool.' Optik
