About this book

This volume on the novelties in the electronic properties of solids appears in occasion of Franco Bassani sixtieth birthday, and is dedicated to honour a scientific activity which has contributed so much of the development of this very active area of research. It is re­ markable that this book can cover so large a part of the current research on electronic properties of solids by contributions from Bassani's former students, collaborators at different stages of his scientific life, and physicists from all over the world who have been in close scientific relationship with him. A personal flavour therefore accompanies a number of the papers of this volume, which are both up-to-date reports on present research and original recollections of the early events of modern solid state physics. The volume begins with a few contributions dealing with theoretical procedures for electronic energy levels, a primary step toward the interpretation of structural and optical properties of extended and confined systems. Other papers concern the interacting state of electrons with light (polaritons) and the effect of the coupling of electrons with lattice vibrations, with emphasis on the thermal behaviour of the electron levels and on such experimental procedures as piezospectroscopy. Electron-lattice interaction in external magnetic field and transport-related properties due to high light excitation are also con­ sidered. The impact of synchroton radiation on condensed matter spectroscopy is dis­ cussed in a topical contribution, and optical measurements are presented for extended and impurity levels.

Reviews

`In summary, this is an impressive and eclectic collection of papers dealing with both theory and experiment of electrons in solids. Since the book honors a noted scientist's influence on his fellow physicists, cohesiveness has been limited by comprehensiveness. This book is recommended for the specialist wishing a well-written account of some of the important advances in the field.'
Journal of the American Chemical Society, 112:24, 1990
