This introduction to solid-state physics emphasizes bothexperimental and theoretical aspects of the subject. Threeimportant areas of modern researchare treated in particulardetail: magnetism, superconductivity, and semiconductorphysics. Experimental aspects with examples taken fromresearch areas of current interest are presented in the formof separate panels. This novel format was highly praised byreaders of the orignal German text and, here too, shouldhelp the student to relate the theoretical conceptsdescribed in the text to important practical applications.Students will benefit significantly from working through theproblems related to each chapter. In many cases these leadinto areas outside the scope of the main text and aredesigned to stimulate further reading.

This new edition of the popular introduction to solid-state physics provides a comprehensive overview on basic theoretical and experimental concepts of material science. Additional sections emphasize current topics in solid-state physics.
Notably, sections on important devices, aspects of non-periodic structures of matter, phase transitions, defects, superconductors and nanostructures have been added, the chapters presenting semi- and superconductivity had been completly updated.
Students will benefit significantly from solving the exercises given at the end of each chapter. This book is intended for university students in physics, engineering and electrical engineering. This edition has been carefully revised, updated, and enlarged. Among the key recent developments incorporated throughout GMR (giant magneto resistance), thin-film magnetic properties, magnetic hysteresis and domain walls, quantum transport, metamaterials, and preparation techniques for nanostructures.
