Electrical Properties of Materials

Laszlo Solymar, Donald Walsh, and Richard R. A. Syms

Abstract

A classic text in the field providing a readable and accessible guide for students of electrical and electronic engineering. Fundamentals of electric properties of materials are illustrated and put into context with contemporary applications in engineering. Mathematical content is kept to a minimum allowing the reader to focus on the subject. The starting point is the behaviour of the electron, which is explored both in the classical and in the quantum-mechanical context. Then comes the study of bonds, the free electron model, band structure, and the theory of semiconductors, followed by a cha ... More

Keywords: Electrons, band structure, dielectrics, semiconductors, magnetism, lasers, optoelectronics, superconductivity, metamaterials
