About this book series

Topics in Applied Physics is a well-established series of review books, each of which presents a comprehensive survey of a selected topic within the domain of applied physics. Since 1973 it has served a broad readership across academia and industry, providing both newcomers and seasoned scholars easy but comprehensive access to the state of the art of a number of diverse research topics.

Edited and written by leading international scientists, each volume contains high-quality review contributions, extending from an introduction to the subject right up to the frontiers of contemporary research.

Topics in Applied Physics strives to provide its readership with a diverse and interdisciplinary collection of some of the most current topics across the full spectrum of applied physics research, including but not limited to:

• Quantum computation and information

• Photonics, optoelectronics and device physics

• Nanoscale science and technology

• Ultrafast physics

• Microscopy and advanced imaging

• Biomaterials and biophysics

• Liquids and soft matter

• Materials for energy

• Geophysics

• Computational physics and numerical methods

• Interdisciplinary physics and engineering

We welcome any suggestions for topics coming from the community of applied physicists, no matter what the field, and encourage prospective book editors to approach us with ideas. Potential authors who wish to submit a book proposal should contact Zach Evenson, Publishing Editor:
