A thorough introduction to fundamental principles and applications
From its beginnings in metallurgy and ceramics, materials science now encompasses such high- tech fields as microelectronics, polymers, biomaterials, and nanotechnology. Electronic Materials Science presents the fundamentals of the subject in a detailed fashion for a multidisciplinary audience. Offering a higher-level treatment than an undergraduate textbook provides, this text benefits students and practitioners not only in electronics and optical materials science, but also in additional cutting-edge fields like polymers and biomaterials.
Readers with a basic understanding of physical chemistry or physics will appreciate the text's sophisticated presentation of today's materials science. Instructive derivations of important formulae, usually omitted in an introductory text, are included here. This feature offers a useful glimpse into the foundations of how the discipline understands such topics as defects, phase equilibria, and mechanical properties. Additionally, concepts such as reciprocal space, electron energy band theory, and thermodynamics enter the discussion earlier and in a more robust fashion than in other texts.
Electronic Materials Science also features:
* An orientation towards industry and academia drawn from the author'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 introductory text, Electronic Materials Science prepares graduate and upper-level undergraduate students for advanced topics in the discipline and gives scientists in associated disciplines a clear review of the field and its leading technologies.
EUGENE A. IRENE is Professor of Physical Chemistry at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. He received his PhD in solid-state and physical chemistry from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in 1972 and worked for IBM for ten years in the Thomas J. Watson Research Center.
