Written for graduate students, professionals and researchers, the Springer Handbook of Electronic and Photonic Materials provides broad coverage of the field, including novel materials; selected applications; materials growth and characterization; and fundamental electronic, optical and magnetic properties. The 1438-page resource contains more than 600 two-color illustrations and more than 100 tables summarizing equations, and experimental techniques and properties of materials. It emphasizes physical concepts over extensive mathematical derivations and includes a searchable CD-ROM with full contents, access to data and links to other sources.

- The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
