About this Textbook

Fundamentals of Solid State Engineering, 3rd Edition, provides a multi-disciplinary introduction to solid state engineering, combining concepts from physics, chemistry, electrical engineering, materials science and mechanical engineering.

Revised throughout, this third edition includes new topics such as electron-electron and electron-phonon interactions, in addition to the Kane effective mass method. A chapter devoted to quantum mechanics has been expanded to cover topics such as the harmonic oscillator, the hydrogen atom, the quantum mechanical description of angular momentum and the origin of spin. This textbook also features an improved transport theory description, which now goes beyond Drude theory, discussing the Boltzmann approach.

Introducing students to the rigorous quantum mechanical way of thinking about and formulating transport processes, this textbook presents the basic physics concepts and thorough treatment of semiconductor characterization technology, designed for solid state engineers.

Reviews

From the reviews of the third edition: “The subject area of solid state engineering is potentially very complex … . Manijeh Razeghi takes a multi-disciplinary approach to the text to address the requirements for engineers and scientists … . He commendably uses illustrations and worked examples for the benefit of comprehension; this is an excellent and well-rounded book.” (Times Higher Education, December, 2009)
