Explore the relationship between quantum mechanics and information--age applications This volume takes an altogether unique approach to quantum mechanics. Providing an in--depth exposition of quantum mechanics fundamentals, it shows how these concepts are applied to most of today's information technologies, whether they are electronic devices or materials. No other text makes this critical, essential leap from theory to real--world applications. The book's lively discussion of the mathematics involved fits right in with contemporary multidisciplinary trends in education: Once the basic formulation has been derived in a given chapter, the connection to important technological problems is summarily described. nThe many helpful features include Twenty--eight application--oriented sections that focus on lasers, transistors, magnetic memories, superconductors, nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), and other important technology--driving materials and devices One hundred solved examples, with an emphasis on numerical results and the connection between the physics and its applications End--of--chapter problems that ground the student in both fundamental and applied concepts Numerous figures and tables to clarify the various topics and provide a global view of the problems under discussion Over two hundred illustrations to highlight problems and text A book for the information age, Quantum Mechanics: Fundamentals and Applications to Technology promises to become a standard in departments of electrical engineering, applied physics, and materials science, as well as physics. It is an excellent text for senior undergraduate and graduate students, and a helpful reference for practicing scientists, engineers, and chemists in the semiconductor and electronic industries.
