About this Textbook

This compact undergraduate textbook provides a concise yet thorough introduction to the fundamentals of solid-state physics, while also briefly discussing the historical context surrounding key scholars in the field. The vivid explanations and unique didactic approach adopted in the book aim to generate interest in these subjects while also serving as a motivating primer and supporting companion for studying more detailed and advanced textbooks in solid-state physics. The book is also suitable as a quick refresher for students preparing for examinations.

The third edition features many extensions, including an up-to-date discussion of topological materials, a rapidly developing area at the forefront of solid-state physics. Primarily concentrating on the electric and magnetic properties of materials, the book will benefit undergraduate students in the fields of physics, materials science, and electrical engineering.

About the authors

Rudolf Huebener studied physics and mathematics at the University of Marburg and at the technical universities of Munich and Darmstadt, Germany. In 1958, he completed his Ph.D. in experimental physics at Marburg. After having worked at the Research Center Karlsruhe and at a research institute near Albany, New York, USA, he worked for 12 years at Argonne National Laboratory near Chicago, Illinois. In 1974, he accepted an appointment as the chair of experimental physics at the University of Tübingen, Germany, where he taught and worked until his retirement in 1999. In honor of his scientific achievements, Rudolf Huebener was awarded the Max Planck Research Prize in 1992, together with Chang C. Tsuei, and the Cryogenics Prize in 2001.
