About

Overview

This unique handbook provides broad coverage of a wide range of electronic and photonic materials, starting from fundamentals and building up to advanced topics and applications. Its wide coverage, with clear illustrations and applications and its chapter sequencing and logical flow, make this both a very useful and 'useable' handbook. Each chapter has been prepared either by expert researchers or instructors who have been teaching the subject at a university or in corporate laboratories. Starting at a senior-undergraduate level and builds up the subject matter in easy steps and in a logical flow, the sections are logically sequenced to allow those who need a quick overview of a particular topic immediate access to it. Additional valuable features include the practical applications used as examples, details on experimental techniques, useful tables that summarize equations, and, most importantly, properties of various materials. Each chapter is full of clear color illustrations that convey the concepts and make the subject matter enjoyable to read and understand. An extensive glossary aids readers form adjacent fields. This work constitutes an essential reference for today's electrical engineers, material scientists and physicists.
