Chemical reactions catalyzed on the surface of nanoparticles like these are a hot area of research. This Penrose tile is a 2-D example of a quasicrystal. There is perfect long-range order and no periodicity in the normal sense. Bulletin Description: This course concentrates on the basic notions of solid state physics, treated mostly within the single-particle approximation. Main topics include: crystal lattices and symmetries, reciprocal lattice and state counting, phonons, electron energy band theory, bonding and cohesion semi-quantitatively , electron dynamics and electron transport in metals and semiconductors, screening, optical properties of solids, and an introduction to magnetism. Additional topics not mentioned in the bulletin description: superconductivity, a little nanophysics, and a tiny bit of surface physics.

This book gives detailed matter regarding Solids. Ziman explained thorougly the subject. It is useful to the syudents of B. Sc and Ph. One person found this helpful.
See the review. Most helpful customer reviews on site. Verified download. Excellent classic text but Kindle edition has very tiny equations that cannot be resized. I am using the latest Kindle for PC reader on a Windows 10 laptop having a 15 inch screen with x resolution.
The equations are very tiny even when using the full screen reading mode. The equations can be barely read even when using a magnifying glass. When using a magnifier so that I can see individual pixels, I can discern that very few pixels are used to represent the smaller symbols so that the smaller symbols are smeared and indistinct no matter how high a magnification is used.
This is the best book to read for graduate level solid state physics. I bought two books for a class in Solid state physics. This one and Introduction to solid states physics by Kittel. The latter was much better than this green covered one, which makes everything very confusing.

To do this one needs both a good physical and mathematical background. One definition of solid-state physics is that it is the study of the physical e. In one sense, solid-state physics is more like chemistry than some other branches of physics because it focuses on common properties of large classes of materials. It is typical that solid-state physics emphasizes how physical properties link to the electronic structure.
In this book we will emphasize crystalline solids which are periodic 3D arrays of atoms. We have retained the term solid-state physics, even though condensed-matter physics is more commonly used.
Condensed-matter physics includes liquids and non -crystalline solids such as glass, about which we have little to say. We have also included only a little material concerning soft condensed matter which includes polymers, membranes and liquid crystals — it also includes wood and gelatins. Modern solid-state physics came of age in the late s and early s see Seitz  , and had its most extensive expansion with the development of the transistor, integrated circuits, and microelectronics.
Most of microelectronics, however, is limited to the properties of inhomogeneously doped semiconductors. Solid-state physics includes many other areas of course; among the largest of these are ferromagnetic materials, and superconductors. Just a little less than half of all working physicists are engaged in condensed matter work, including solid-state.
One earlier version of this book was first published 30 years ago J. Sticking to the original idea of presenting basics has meant that the early parts are relatively unchanged although they contain new and reworked material , dealing as they do with structure Chap. Of course, the scope of solid-state physics has greatly expanded during the past 30 years.
Consequently, separate chapters are now devoted to metals and the Fermi surface 5 , semiconductors 6 , magnetism 7, expanded and reorganized , superconductors 8 , dielectrics and ferroelectrics 9 , optical properties 10 , defects 11 , and a final chapter 12 that includes surfaces, and brief mention of modern topics nanostructures, the quantum Hall effect, carbon nanotubes, amorphous materials, and soft condensed matter. The VI Preface reference list has been brought up to date, and several relevant topics are further discussed in the appendices.
The table of contents can be consulted for a full list of what is now included. The fact that one of us JDP has taught solid-state physics over the course of this 30 years has helped define the scope of this book, which is intended as a textbook.
Like golf, teaching is a humbling experience. We hope this book will help students to begin a life-long learning experience, for only in that way can they gain a deep understanding of solid-state physics. Discoveries continue in solid-state physics. Some of the more obvious ones during the last thirty years are: quasicrystals, the quantum Hall effect both integer and fractional — where one must finally confront new aspects of electron—electron interactions , high-temperature superconductivity, and heavy fermions.
We have included these, at least to some extent, as well as several others. Since this is an introductory book on solid-state theory, we have only included brief summaries of these techniques.
There have also been numerous areas in which applications have played a driving role. These include semiconductor technology, spin-polarized tunneling, and giant magnetoresistance GMR. We have at least briefly discussed these as well as other topics. Greatly increased computing power has allowed many ab initio methods of calculations to become practical. Most of these require specialized discussions beyond the scope of this book. However, we continue to discuss pseudopotentials, and have added a Section on density functional techniques.
Problems are given at the end of each chapter many new problems have been added.
Occasionally they are quite long and have different approximate solutions. This may be frustrating, but it appears to be necessary to work problems in solidstate physics in order to gain a physical feeling for the subject. In this respect, solid-state physics is no different from many other branches of physics.
We should discuss what level of students for which this book is intended. One could perhaps more appropriately ask what degree of maturity of the students is assumed?
Obviously, some introduction to quantum mechanics, solid-state physics, thermodynamics, statistical mechanics, mathematical physics, as well as basic mechanics and electrodynamics is necessary. In our experience, this is most commonly encountered in graduate students, although certain mature undergraduates will be able to handle much of the material in this book.
We caution professors to be realistic as to what their students can really grasp. If the students have a good start, they have their whole careers to fill in the details. Preface VII The method of presentation of the topics draws heavily on many other solidstate books listed in the bibliography.
Acknowledgment due the authors of these books is made here. The selection of topics was also influenced by discussion with colleagues and former teachers, some of whom are mentioned later.
We think that solid-state physics abundantly proves that more is different, as has been attributed to P. There really are emergent properties at higher levels of complexity. Seeking them, including applications, is what keeps solid-state physics alive. In this day and age, no one book can hope to cover all of solid-state physics. We would like to particularly single out the following books for reference and or further study.
