Extensive new coverage of:

  • Computational science and engineering
  • Nanoscale properties
  • Point defects
  • Advances in crystallography related topics

There have been radical developments in the study of solid statematerials over the past 10 years - think batteries, solarcells, graphene, carbon nanotubes - and this new edition hasbeen meticulously updated to reflect these advances. Retaining thestructure of the highly- egarded first edition, it contains fiveparts covering: structures and microstructures; classes ofmaterials; reactions and transformations; physical properties; andnuclear properties of solids.

Each chapter is self-contained to encourage studentunderstanding and to reinforce key concepts, and includes furtherreading, problems and exercises. Additional resources are availableonline, including supplementary material, colour figures, solutionsto the introductory questions, and problems and exercises.

Equally accessible to both science and engineering students, Understanding Solids, Second Edition provides an invaluablefoundation in the physical and chemical properties of solids, andis essential for those studying materials science, physics, chemistry and engineering.

New Topics Include

  • Lithium-air batteries
  • Flexoelectricity
  • Crystal field effects
  • Photoinduced magnetism
  • Dye sensitized solar cells
  • Zero thermal expanding solids
  • Radio-isotope dating
