Electronic Properties of Crystalline Solids: An Introduction to Fundamentals discusses courses in the electronic properties of solids taught in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Stanford University. The book starts with a brief review of classical wave mechanics, discussing concept of waves and their role in the interactions of electrons, phonons, and photons. The book covers the free electron model for metals, and the origin, derivation, and properties of allowed and forbidden energy bands for electrons in crystalline materials. It also examines transport phenomena and optical effects in crystalline materials, including electrical conductivity, scattering phenomena, thermal conductivity, Hall and thermoelectric effects, magnetoresistance, optical absorption, photoconductivity, and other photoelectronic effects in both ideal and real materials. This book is intended for upper-level undergraduates in a science major, or for first- or second-year graduate students with an interest in the scientific basis for our understanding of properties of materials.

Excellent bridge between general solid-state physics textbook and research articles packed with providing detailed explanations of the electronic, vibrational, transport, and optical properties of semiconductors "The most striking feature of the book is its modern outlook ... provides a wonderful foundation. The most wonderful feature is its efficient style of exposition ... an excellent book." Physics Today "Presents the theoretical derivations carefully and in detail and gives thorough discussions of the experimental results it presents. This makes it an excellent textbook both for learners and for more experienced researchers wishing to check facts. I have enjoyed reading it and strongly recommend it as a text for anyone working with semiconductors ... I know of no better text ... I am sure most semiconductor physicists will find this book useful and I recommend it to them." Contemporary Physics Offers much new material: an extensive appendix about the important and by now well-established, deep center known as the DX center, additional problems and the solutions to over fifty of the problems at the end of the various chapters.

A thorough introduction to fundamental principles andapplications From its beginnings in metallurgy and ceramics, materials sciencenow encompasses such high- tech fields as microelectronics,polymers, biomaterials, and nanotechnology. Electronic MaterialsScience presents the fundamentals of the subject in a detailedfashion for a multidisciplinary audience. Offering a higher-leveltreatment than an undergraduate textbook provides, this textbenefits students and practitioners not only in electronics andoptical materials science, but also in additional cutting-edgefields like polymers and biomaterials. Readers with a basic understanding of physical chemistry or physicswill appreciate the text's sophisticated presentation of today'smaterials science. Instructive derivations of important formulae,usually omitted in an introductory text, are included here. Thisfeature offers a useful glimpse into the foundations of how thediscipline understands such topics as defects, phase equilibria,and mechanical properties. Additionally, concepts such asreciprocal space, electron energy band theory, and thermodynamicsenter the discussion earlier and in a more robust fashion than inother texts. Electronic Materials Science also features: * An orientation towards industry and academia drawn from theauthor's experience in both arenas * Information on applications in semiconductors, optoelectronics,photocells, and nanoelectronics * Problem sets and important references throughout * Flexibility for various pedagogical needs Treating the subject with more depth than any other introductorytext, Electronic Materials Science prepares graduate andupper-level undergraduate students for advanced topics in thediscipline and gives scientists in associated disciplines a clearreview of the field and its leading technologies.

This is perhaps the most comprehensive undergraduate textbook on the fundamental aspects of solid state electronics. It presents basic and state-of-the-art topics on materials physics, device physics, and basic circuit building blocks not covered by existing textbooks on the subject. Each topic is introduced with a historical background and motivations of device invention and circuit evolution. Fundamental physics is rigorously discussed with minimum need of tedious algebra and advanced mathematics. Another special feature is a systematic classification of fundamental mechanisms not found even in advanced texts. It bridges the gap between solid state device physics covered here with what students have learnt in their first two years of study.Used very successfully in a one-semester introductory core course for electrical and other engineering, materials science and physics junior students, the second part of each chapter is also used in an advanced undergraduate course on solid state devices. The inclusion of previously unavailable analyses of the basic transistor digital circuit building blocks and cells makes this an excellent reference for engineers to look up fundamental concepts and data, design formulae, and latest devices such as the GeSi heterostructure bipolar transistors.
