- About this Reference Work
Condensed Matter and Materials Science are two of the most active fields of applied physics, with a stream of discoveries in areas from superconductivity and magnetism to the optical, electronic and mechanical properties of materials. While a huge amount of data has been compiled and spread over numerous reference works, no single volume compiles the most used information.
Springer Handbook of Condensed Matter and Materials Dataprovides a concise compilation of data and functional relationships from the fields of solid-state physics and materials in this 1200-page volume. The data, encapsulated in over 750 tables and 1025 illustrations, have been selected and extracted primarily from the extensive high-quality data collection Landolt-Börnstein and also from other systematic data sources and recent publications of physical and technical property data. Many chapters are authored by Landolt-Börnstein editors, including the editors of this Springer Handbook.

From the reviews:
"This handbook, from Springer, is like the combination of physics, materials science, and semiconductor books in a single reference. … Each chapter provides succinct descriptions and representative data for many types of materials. It is intended for students, engineers, and scientists engaged in materials science and semi-conductor fields. … the handbook would be an invaluable resource. The CD-ROM … makes its easy to find materials or topics of interest." (John J. Shea, IEEE Electrical Insulation Magazine, Vol. 22 (5), 2006)
"It is the aim of this handbook to provide a compilation of data and functional relationships from the fields of solid state physics and materials. To my knowledge, this is the most complete compilation I ever see. … It is clear that this is a very interesting book. … No doubt that this book will soon be in every library and on the desk of most solid state scientists and engineers. It will never be at rest." (Michel Wautelet, Physicalia, Vol. 28 (4-6), 2006)
"This handbook consists of five parts. Separate sections are written by authors who are top experts in the field. … This handbook will be helpful and informative for students, scientists, engineers, for everybody interested and engaged in the field of solid-state sciences and materials technologies." (K. M. Salikhov, Applied Magnetic Resonance, Vol. 29 (4), 2005)
"The Springer Handbook of Condensed Matter and Materials Data is the realization of a new concept in reference literature … . The data, encapsulated in 900 tables and 1000 illustrations, have been selected and extracted primarily from the extensive high-quality data collection … . The Handbook is designed to be useful as a desktop reference for fast and easy retrieval of essential and reliable data in the laboratory or office." (K. Jaenicke, Glass Science and Technology, Vol. 78 (4), 2005)
"The Springer Handbook presents the data in a more visually appealing way. … Overall, useful to just about any academic library … . Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through professionals." (J. R. Kraus, CHOICE, November, 2005)
"This Handbook is designed to be used as a desktop reference book for fast and easy finding of essential information and reliable key data. References to more extensive data sources are provided in each section. The main users of this new Handbook are envisaged to be students, scientists, engineers, and other knowledge-seeking persons interested and engaged in the fields of solid-state sciences and material technologies." (Metall, Vol. 59 (7-8), 2005)
