Optical Properties of Solids: Oxford Master Series in Physics, cartea 3

Autor Mark Fox
en Limba Engleză Paperback – 25 mar 2010
The second edition of this successful textbook provides an up-to-date account of the optical physics of solid state materials. The basic principles of absorption, reflection, luminescence, and light scattering are covered for a wide range of materials, including insulators, semiconductors and metals. The text starts with a review of classical optics, and then moves on to the treatment of optical transition rates by quantum theory. In addition to the traditional discussion of crystalline materials, glasses and molecular solids are also covered. The first edition included a number of subjects that are not normally covered in standard texts, notably semiconductor quantum wells, molecular materials, vibronic solid state lasers, and nonlinear optics. The basic structure of the second edition is unchanged, but all of the chapters have been updated and improved. Futhermore, a number of important new topics have been added, including:DT Optical control of spinDT Quantum dotsDT PlasmonicsDT Negative refractionDT Carbon nanostructures (graphene, nanotubes and fullerenes) DT NV centres in diamondThe text is aimed at final year undergraduates, masters students and researchers. It is mainly written for physicists, but might also be useful for electrical engineers, materials scientists and physical chemists. The topics are written in a clear tutorial style with worked examples, chapter summaries and exercises. A solutions manual is available on request for instructors.

Easy to read and understand ... many examples which make it easier to understand. I can highly recommend this book
This excellent book answers the questions of why and how the optical properties of solids differ from those of atoms. It is addressed to senior undergraduates, graduate students and researchers. The balance of physical explanation and mathematical description is very good. The text is supplemented by critical notes in the margins and integrated with self-explanatory figures. Several factors make this an excellent textbook. The problems with solutions augment the pedagogical value of the book, as do the chapter summaries, the further reading at the end of each chapter, the extensive and comprehensive appendices, the biography, the list of symbols and the index.
