Background[ edit ] Solid materials are formed from densely packed atoms, which interact intensely. These interactions produce the mechanical e. Depending on the material involved and the conditions in which it was formed, the atoms may be arranged in a regular, geometric pattern crystalline solids , which include metals and ordinary water ice or irregularly an amorphous solid such as common window glass. The bulk of solid-state physics, as a general theory, is focused on crystals. Primarily, this is because the periodicity of atoms in a crystal — its defining characteristic — facilitates mathematical modeling. Likewise, crystalline materials often have electrical , magnetic , optical , or mechanical properties that can be exploited for engineering purposes.

Solid State Physics for Engineering and Materials Science
Its objective is a simple, yet fairly detailed, presentation of the basic physical properties of crystalline solids and very basic device structures such as p-n junctions and quantum wells. The emphasis is on clear and simple explanations of basic physical theory and application rather than a detailed analysis of complex devices and fabrication technology. This book offers students a body of understanding that will be of lasting usefulness rather than technology that will soon be out of date. It is designed to be user-friendly in all ways. It starts with an introduction to crystals and quantum physics so it you get all the main tools to understand solid state physics.
