Download Solid-State Spectroscopy An Introduction Second Edition By Hans Kuzmany

[Total: 1    Average: 5/5]



To write a second edition of a textbook is a very challenging enterprise for the author in many aspects. First of all it gives the chance to back up the content and the text from the previous edition with all the experience he has collected after the first edition was distributed and to include the full set of advices and recommendations he had received from colleagues and students. As important is the possibility to include new developments in the subject of the book. Solid-state spectroscopy was originally addressed to be most important for our understanding of the solid sate. This promise has been more than fulfilled as in the almost ten years after the publication of the first edition many important technical developments of analytical tools has lead to better or even new understanding of materials. Good examples of this progress are the rapid development of synchrotron radiation as an omnipresent light source, the increasing interest in spintronics which promoted the spectroscopy of spin systems or the new subject of transport or electron addition spectroscopy in nanostructures. These and many other subjects are now included in the textbook or were rephrased according to the most recent developments.
