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.
