9780122276101: Encyclopedia of Condensed Matter Physics

The work provides solid coverage in the fundamental theoretical aspects of the subject, with carefully planned cross-linking and structuring to give the user the potential to gain a solid grounding in the theoretical aspects of quantum mechanics, mechanics, electrodynamics, relativity, statistical mechanics, and elementary particiles that form the core physics background for the field.

These core areas form the background for coverage of such areas as crystallography, transport phenomena, various theoretical models (electronic, band structure, materials property models, etc), and physical properties of materials (electrical, magnetic, optical, thermal, etc). Coverage of experimental techniques will include, among others, the full range of scattering, microscopy, and spectroscopy techniques.

Other entries do cover a range of materials processing (solidification, crystal growth, molecular beam epitaxy, sputtering, sintering, etc) and include coverage of key materials systems (macromolecules, nanostructures, polymers, ceramics, and alloys). Special materials systems that have had and continue to have a major impact on society such as semiconductors, laser materials, and superconductors are covered.

The encyclopedia also includes a wide range of applied topics, device-oriented topics, developments in biomaterials, soft condensed matter, complex fluids, etc.

Also available online via ScienceDirect – featuring extensive browsing, searching, and internal cross-referencing between articles in the work, plus dynamic linking to journal articles and abstract databases, making navigation flexible and easy.

Review:

"Very well-organized encyclopedia ... 316 well-written articles illustrated with useful black-and-white or color figures when necessary, with over 2,000 figures in total. Entries usually start with background information on a topic and end with a list of references and glossary...well cross-referenced." Recommended --Choice, April 2006

"I can highly recommend this encyclopedia for the reference collection of many libraries in different disciplines...many of the reviews are concise and provide a quick grounding in key concepts." --Chris Chantler University of Melbourne, Australia for Australian Physics Magazine
