Each chapter has a concise summary that provides a general overview of the subject in the chapter in a clear language. The chapters begin at fundamentals and build up towards advanced concepts and applications. Emphasis is on physical concepts rather than extensive mathematical derivations. Each chapter is full of clear color illustrations that convey the concepts and make the subject matter enjoyable to read and understand. Examples in the chapters have practical applications. Chapters also have numerous extremely useful tables that summarize equations, experimental techniques, and most importantly, properties of various materials. The chapters have been divided into five parts. Each part has chapters that form a coherent treatment of a given area.
Chap. 1 Introduction: Perspectives on Electronic, Optoelectronic, and Photonic MaterialsPart A: Fundamental Electronic, Optical, and Magnetic Properties
Part A contains chapters starting from basic concepts and build up to up-to-date knowledge in a logical easy to follow sequence. Part A would be equivalent to a graduate level treatise that starts from basic structural properties to go onto electrical, dielectric, optical, and magnetic properties. Each chapter starts by assuming someone who has completed a degree in physics, chemistry, engineering, or materials science.
