Solid State Physics

  • Biomimetic Architectures by Plasma Processingby Surojit Chattopadhyay

    Apple Academic Press 2014; US$ 149.95

    Plasma-processed biomimetic structures are an extremely focused and small subset of biomimetics. Although other methods can also be adopted, experimental synthesis of biomimetic structures mainly focuses on plasma processing. This book deals with the theoretical description of photonic structures available in nature, and the physics and applications... more...

  • Silicon, Germanium, and Their Alloysby Gudrun Kissinger; Sergio Pizzini

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 169.95

    Despite the vast knowledge accumulated on silicon, germanium, and their alloys, these materials still demand research, eminently in view of the improvement of knowledge on silicon?germanium alloys and the potentialities of silicon as a substrate for high-efficiency solar cells and for compound semiconductors and the ongoing development of nanodevices... more...

  • Combustion for Material Synthesisby Alexander S. Rogachev; Alexander S. Mukasyan

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 139.95

    Exposes a Powerful Material-Making Tool Dedicated to the physical, chemical, and structural transformations that take place during combustion synthesis (CS) of advanced materials, Combustion for Material Synthesis analyzes the nature of solid flame phenomenon and provides readers with undisputed proof that ?fire? is a powerful tool used... more...

  • Endohedral Metallofullerenesby Xing Lu; Luis Echegoyen; Alan L. Balch; Shigeru Nagase; Takeshi Akasaka

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 129.95

    Knowledge on endohedral metallofullerenes (EMFs) has increased dramatically during the last decade. Numerous research findings have been reported, making it an opportune time to provide a systematic update on EMFs. Endohedral Metallofullerenes: Basics and Applications presents the most comprehensive review on all aspects of EMFs including... more...

  • Carbon-based Superconductorsby Junji Haruyama

    Pan Stanford 2014; US$ 149.95

    Superconductors (SCs) are attractive materials in all respects for any community. They provide a deep insight into the physical properties of the condensed matters and also have useful applications as ultra-low-power-dissipation systems that can help resolve the present energy problems. In particular, the recent advancement of carbon-based new superconductors... more...

  • Properties of Materialsby P.F. Kelly

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 79.95

    The second volume in the author?s three-part series, Properties of Materials uses the principles of classical mechanics to qualitatively and quantitatively model specific features of matter. The text develops linear models of elasticity to correlate and quantify the changes in an object?s shape induced by the application of a constant force.... more...

  • Nonlinear Acoustic Waves in Micro-inhomogeneous Solidsby Veniamin Nazarov; Andrey Radostin

    Wiley 2014; US$ 165.50

    Nonlinear Acoustic Waves in Micro-inhomogeneous Solids covers the broad and dynamic branch of nonlinear acoustics, presenting a wide variety of different phenomena from both experimental and theoretical perspectives. The introductory chapters, written in the style of graduate-level textbook, present a review of the main achievements of classic... more...

  • Functional Cobalt Oxidesby Tsuyoshi Takami

    Pan Stanford 2014; US$ 129.95

    This book explores why cobalt oxides have drawn interest as functional materials due to their peculiar physical properties partially originating from a rich variety of the valence and spin state of cobalt ions. The book starts with the basics of condensed matter physics and advances toward the strong electron correlation system stage. It also provides... more...

  • Physics Project Labby Paul Gluck; King

    Oxford University Press 2014; US$ 48.99

    This book is the result of many years of experience of the authors in guiding physics projects. It aims to satisfy a deeply felt need to involve students and their instructors in extended experimental investigations of physical phenomena. Over fifty extended projects are described in detail, at various levels of sophistication, aimed at both the advanced... more...

  • Light-Induced Defects in Semiconductorsby Kazuo Morigaki; Harumi Hikita; Chisato Ogihara

    Pan Stanford 2014; US$ 149.95

    This book covers electronic and structural properties of light-induced defects, light-induced defect creation processes, and related phenomena in crystalline, amorphous, and microcrystalline semiconductors. It provides a theoretical treatment of recombination-enhanced defect reaction in crystalline semiconductors, particularly GaAs and related materials.... more...
