Mechanical and thermal properties are reviewed and electrical and magnetic properties are emphasized. Basics of symmetry and internal structure of crystals and the main properties of metals, dielectrics, semiconductors, and magnetic materials are discussed. The theory and modern experimental data are presented, as well as the specifications of materials that are necessary for practical application in electronics. The modern state of research in nanophysics of metals, magnetic materials, dielectrics and semiconductors is taken into account, with particular attention to the influence of structure on the physical properties of nano-materials. The book uses simplified mathematical treatment of theories, while emphasis is placed on the basic concepts of physical phenomena in electronic materials. Most chapters are devoted to the advanced scientific and technological problems of electronic materials; in addition, some new insights into theoretical facts relevant to technical devices are presented. Electronic Materials is an essential reference for newcomers to the field of electronics, providing a fundamental understanding of important basic and advanced concepts in electronic materials science. Provides important overview of the fundamentals of electronic materials properties significant for device applications along with advanced and applied concepts essential to those working in the field of electronics Takes a simplified and mathematical approach to theories essential to the understanding of electronic materials and summarizes important takeaways at the end of each chapter Interweaves modern experimental data and research in topics such as nanophysics, nanomaterials and dielectrics
Electronic materials are a dominant factor in many areas of modern technology. The need to understand'them is paramount; this book addresses that need. The main aim of this volume is to provide a broad unified view of electronic materials, including key aspects of their science and technology and also, in many cases, their commercial implications. It was considered important that much of the contents of such an overview should be intelligible by a broad audience of graduates and industrial scientists, and relevant to advanced undergraduate studies. It should also be up to date and even looking forward to the future. Although more extensive, and written specifically as a text, the resulting book has much in common with a short course of the same name given at Coventry Polytechnic. The interpretation of the term "electronic materials" used in this volume is a very broad one, in line with the initial aim. The principal restriction is that, with one or two minor exceptions relating to aspects of device processing, for example, the materials dealt with are all active materials. Materials such as simple insulators or simple conductors, playing only a passive role, are not singled out for consider ation. Active materials might be defined as those involved in the processing of signals in a way that depends crucially on some specific property of those materials, and the immediate question then concerns the types of signals that might be considered.

Presents an overview of various materials, such as conducting materials, semiconductors, magnetic materials, optical materials, dielectric materials, superconductors, thermoelectric materials and ionic materials. This title includes chapters on thin film electronic materials, organic electronic materials and nanostructured materials.
Modem materials science is exploiting novel tools of solid-state physics and chemistry to obtain an unprecedented understanding of the structure of matter at the atomic level. The direct outcome of this understanding is the ability to design and fabricate new materials whose properties are tailored to a given device ap plication. Although applications of materials science can range from low weight, high strength composites for the automobile and aviation industry to biocompat ible polymers, in no other field has progress been more strikingly rapid than in that of electronic materials. In this area, it is now possible to predict from first principles the properties of hypothetical materials and to construct artificially structured materials with layer-by-Iayer control of composition and microstruc ture. The resulting superlattices, multiple quantum wells, and high temperature superconductors, among others, will dominate our technological future. A large fraction of the current undergraduate and graduate students in science and engi neering will be directly involved in furthering the revolution in electronic mate rials. With this book, we want to welcome such students to electronic materials research and provide them with an introduction to this exciting and rapidly de veloping area of study. A second purpose of this volume is to provide experts in other fields of solid state physics and chemistry with an overview of contemporary research within the field of electronic materials.

Semiconductors and electronic materials have benefitted from photoacoustic and photothermal techniques since the late 1970s. This volume, the fourth in a series on photothermal and photoacoustic science and technology (PPST), presents a comprehensive review of the diverse progress made in PPST of semiconductors and electronic materials during the 1990s. The 10 chapters review leading research activities in several subfields of PPST. These include applications of novel analytical and/or experimental techniques to traditional semiconductor materials and devices as well as applications of conventional techniques to novel materials and devices. As with other volumes in the series, this text is useful as a reference for practising scientists and engineers and as a supplement to upper-level graduate courses in various areas of PPST and its subfields.
Modern Electronic Materials focuses on the development of electronic components. The book first discusses the history of electronic components, including early developments up to 1900, developments up to World War II, post-war developments, and a comparison of present microelectric techniques. The text takes a look at resistive materials. Topics include resistor requirements, basic properties, evaporated film resistors, thick film resistors, and special resistors. The text examines dielectric materials. Considerations include basic properties, evaporated dielectric materials, ceramic dielectrics, metallization process, vacuum tightness, and materials with large values of permittivity. The text also discusses the reliability of discrete electronic components. The book also explains magnetic materials. Focus is on basic properties, preparation of ferrite materials, magnetization curve, and microwave properties of ferrite materials. The text is a valuable reference for readers interested in electronic materials.
The study of solids and materials, while having originated from the disciplines of physics and chemistry, has evolved independently over the past few decades. This book aims to bridge the gap between solid-state physics, materials science and electronics. Its provides an understanding of the operation of devices.
An advanced level textbook covering geometric, chemical, and electronic structure of electronic materials, and their applications to devices based on semiconductor surfaces, metal-semiconductor interfaces, and semiconductor heterojunctions. Starting with the fundamentals of electrical measurements on semiconductor interfaces, it then describes the importance of controlling macroscopic electrical properties by atomic-scale techniques. Subsequent chapters present the wide range of surface and interface techniques available to characterize electronic, optical, chemical, and structural properties of electronic materials, including semiconductors, insulators, nanostructures, and organics. The essential physics and chemistry underlying each technique is described in sufficient depth with references to the most authoritative sources for more exhaustive discussions, while numerous examples are provided throughout to illustrate the applications of each technique. With its general reading lists, extensive citations to the text, and problem sets appended to all chapters, this is ideal for students of electrical engineering, physics and materials science. It equally serves as a reference for physicists, material science and electrical and electronic engineers involved in surface and interface science, semiconductor processing, and device modeling and design.

The MATERIALS IN ACTION series has been produced by the Materials Engineering Department of the Open University's Technology Faculty as an undergraduate-level text. Its publication in book format brings the Open University's highly regarded texts and teaching methods to a wider audience. The series comprises four books:Materials Principles and PracticeManufacturing with MaterialsStructural MaterialsElectronic MaterialsEach book is self-contained and is based on an industrial context.Electronic Materials is about materials that are used for their electrical and magnetic properties, rather than their mechanical properties. Exploiting electronic properties in many products calls for careful manipulation of materials' structures at the atomic and microstructural levels. The book explains the scientific models needed to guide those manipulations and describes how they are commercially exploited inside electronic devices.Printed, hybrid and integrated circuit technologies are discussed together with ways of providing circuit components at each scale. Electronic and magnetic transducers, magnetic components (such as transformer cores and memory systems), optoelectronics, visual-display technologies and semiconductor memory systems are examined. A study of the interplay among the development, manufacture and marketing of innovative high-temperature superconductors puts these topics into an entrepreneurial context.
