Solid State Physics

  • Spin Glassesby Marco Baity Jesi

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 129.00

    This thesis addresses the surprising features of zero-temperature statics and dynamics of several spin glass models, including correlations between soft spins that arise spontaneously during avalanches, and the discovery of localized states that involve the presence of two-level systems. It also presents the only detailed historiographical research... more...

  • Ultrafast Strong Field Dynamics in Dielectricsby Annkatrin Madlen Sommer

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 129.00

    This thesis presents a systematic discussion of experimental approaches to investigating the nonlinear interaction of ultrashort visible strong fields with dielectrics directly in the time domain. The key finding is the distinctly different peak-intensity dependence of the light-matter energy transfer dynamics on the one hand, and the observed transient... more...

  • Ion Beam Modification of Solidsby Werner Wesch; Elke Wendler

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 229.00

    This book presents the method of ion beam modification of solids in realization, theory and applications in a comprehensive way. It provides a review of the physical basics of ion-solid interaction and on ion-beam induced structural modifications of solids. Ion beams are widely used to modify the physical properties of materials. A complete theory... more...

  • Advanced Characterization Techniques for Thin Film Solar Cellsby Daniel Abou-Ras; Thomas Kirchartz; Uwe Rau

    Wiley 2016; US$ 205.00 US$ 177.67

    The book focuses on advanced characterization methods for thin-film solar cells that have proven their relevance both for academic and corporate photovoltaic research and development. After an introduction to thin-film photovoltaics, highly experienced experts report on device and materials characterization methods such as electroluminescence analysis,... more...

  • Basic Physics of Functionalized Graphiteby Pablo D. Esquinazi

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 129.00

    This book summarizes the basic physics of graphite and newly discovered phenomena in this material. The book contains the knowledge needed to understand novel properties of functionalized graphite demonstrating the occurrence of remarkable phenomena in disordered graphite and graphite-based heterostructures. It also discusses applications of thin graphitic... more...

  • Fundamentals of Radiation Materials Scienceby Gary S. Was

    Springer New York 2016; US$ 129.00

    The revised second edition of this established text offers readers a significantly expanded introduction to the effects of radiation on metals and alloys.  It describes the various processes that occur when energetic particles strike a solid, inducing changes to the physical and mechanical properties of the material.  Specifically it covers... more...

  • Electronic Properties of Organic Conductorsby Takehiko Mori

    Springer Japan 2016; US$ 179.00

    This book provides an easily understandable introduction to solid state physics for chemists and engineers. Band theory is introduced as an extension of molecular orbital theory, and its application to organic materials is described. Phenomena beyond band theory are treated in relation to magnetism and electron correlation, which are explained in... more...

  • Self-healing Materialsby Martin D. Hager; Sybrand van der Zwaag; Ulrich S. Schubert
