This text on the electrical, optical, magnetic, and
thermal properties of materials stresses concepts
rather than mathematical formalism. Suitable for
advanced undergraduates, it is intended for materials and electrical engineers who want to gain a
fundamental understanding of alloys, semiconductor devices, lasers, magnetic materials, and so
forth. The book is organized to be used in a onesemester course; to that end each section of applications, after the introduction to the fundamentals
of electron theory, can be read independently of
the others. Many examples from engineering practice serve to provide an understanding of common
devices and methods.
7 Widely used, course-tested text is now available
in an updated Fourth Edition 7 Introduces the
elements of solid-state physics that are required
to understand the coverage of electrical, optical,
magnetic, and thermal properties of materials and
their applications 7 Stresses concepts rather than
mathematical formalism
