About this title

Synopsis:

It includes both chemical and physical approaches to the propertiesof solids, and clearly separates those aspects of materialsproperties that can be tackled with classical physics from thosethat require quantum mechanics.
* Quantum mechanics are introduced later to allow readers to befamiliar with some of the mathematics necessary for quantummechanics before being exposed to its bewildering fundamentalconcepts.
* Discusses the electronic properties of solids from the viewpointof elementary band theory, and end with a brief treatment ofsemiconductors and some semiconducting devices.

From the Back Cover:

FINALLY, AN ACCESSIBLE INTRODUCTION TO THE ELECTRONIC PROPERTIESOF MATERIALS!

Livingston helps make the complex concepts behind the electronicproperties of materials much more accessible for students. His veryreadable writing style and clear organization help to make the keytopics much easier to understand. The first part of this textpresents only “classical” ideas, covering theelectronic properties of solids that are pertinent to the use ofmaterials as components in various products. The second partintroduces Quantum mechanics and applies Quantum chemistry andQuantum physics to the basic properties of metals, insulators, andsemiconductors. This approach allows the student to become familiarwith some of the mathematics necessary for Quantum mechanics beforebeing exposed to the more challenging fundamental concepts.

Special features of the Text:

  • Quantum chemistry and Quantum physics are presented in abalanced approach.
  • A strong focus is placedon optical properties of solids.Students will be especially interested on the coverage of colorwhich answers everyday Questions from why the sky is blue to whythe grass is green.
  • Actual engineering applications are used frequently to showstudents the importance of the developments of math physics.
