An essential guide to solid state physics through the lens of dimensionality and symmetry Foundations of Solid State Physics introduces the essential topics of solid state physics as taught globally with a focus on understanding the properties of solids from the viewpoint of dimensionality and symmetry. Written in a conversational manner and designed to be accessible, the book contains a minimal amount of mathematics. The authors?noted experts on the topic?offer an insightful review of the basic topics, such as the static and dynamic lattice in real space, the reciprocal lattice, electrons in solids, and transport in materials and devices. The book also includes more advanced topics: the quasi-particle concept (phonons, solitons, polarons, excitons), strong electron-electron correlation, light-matter interactions, and spin systems. The authors' approach makes it possible to gain a clear understanding of conducting polymers, carbon nanotubes, nanowires, two-dimensional chalcogenides, perovskites and organic crystals in terms of their expressed dimension, topological connectedness, and quantum confinement. This important guide: -Offers an understanding of a variety of technology-relevant solid-state materials in terms of their dimension, topology and quantum confinement -Contains end-of-chapter problems with different degrees of difficulty to enhance understanding -Treats all classical topics of solid state physics courses - plus the physics of low-dimensional systems Written for students in physics, material sciences, and chemistry, lecturers, and other academics, Foundations of Solid State Physics explores the basic and advanced topics of solid state physics with a unique focus on dimensionality and symmetry.

The innovative text gives an introductory treatment of the optical properties of solids. The fundamental principles of absorption, reflection, luminescence and light scattering are discussed for a wide range of materials, including crystalline insulators and semiconductors, glasses, metals,and molecular materials. Classical and quantum models are used as appropriate, and the phenomena are well illustrated using recent experimental data. A particular feature is the inclusion of many new topics that have come to the fore in recent years and have not previously been covered in othersolid state texts at this level. Examples include semiconductor quantum wells, organic semiconductors, vibronic solid state lasers and nonlinear optics.The book is primarily written for physicists, but it will also be useful for electrical engineers, materials scientists, and physical chemists. The subject material is developed in a tutorial style, and includes worked examples, exercises, and chapter summaries for revision.

The power of nuclear magnetic resonance, NMR, for characterizing molecules dissolved in solution is widely acknowledged and NMR forms an essential component of undergraduate chemistry degrees. However, the application of NMR to the solid state is much less well appreciated. This text sets out the fundamental principles of solid-state NMR, explaining how NMR in solids differs from that in solution, showing how the various interactions of NMR can be manipulated to yield high-resolution spectra and to give information on local structure and dynamics in solids. This book aims to take some of the mystique out of solid-state NMR by providing a comprehensible discussion of the methodology, including the basic concepts and a practical guide to implementation of the experiments. A basic knowledge of solution-state NMR is assumed and is only briefly covered. The text is intended for those in academia and industry expecting to use solid-state NMR in their research and looking for an accessible introduction to the field. It will also be valuable for non-experts interested in learning how NMR can be usefully applied to solid systems. Detailed mathematical treatments are delayed to a chapter at the mid-point of the text and can be skipped. Introductions to experiments and numerical simulations are provided to help link NMR results to experimental practice. The different aspects of solid-state NMR, from basic pulse-and-acquire experiments to sophisticated techniques for the measurement of anisotropy information are presented. Examples illustrate the wide variety of applications of the technique and its complementarity to other solid-state characterization techniques such as X-ray diffraction. Various aspects of NMR crystallography are covered as are topics of motion in solids.
