This book integrates materials science with other engineering subjects such as physics, chemistry and electrical engineering. The authors discuss devices and technologies used by the electronics, magnetics and photonics industries and offer a perspective on the manufacturing technologies used in device fabrication. The new addition includes chapters on optical properties and devices and addresses nanoscale phenomena and nanoscience, a subject that has made significant progress in the past decade regarding the fabrication of various materials and devices with nanometer-scale features.

"...the key strength of this volume is its addressing of applications of materials which exploit a wide range of physical phenomena. The worked examples give important insights into the magnitudes of the quantities involved, which are of course crucial to the practicality of the applications."
-Anthony Harker, University College London, UK
"This book covers most of the physics needed for juniors to understand the basic electrical, magnetic and optical properties of materials. Its advantage is that all of the appropriate topics are covered in a single volume, making it a good choice as the principal text book for such a class. The worked examples are nice, and there is a good set of problems at the end of each chapter."
- Alastair N. Cormack, Alfred University, New York, USA
"Electronic, Magnetic, and Optical Materials delivers what it promises: a comprehensive overview of the electronic, magnetic, and optical properties of a wide range of technologically important materials. The extensive use of worked examples provides the reader with excellent problem-solving skills, while the end of chapter problems should make the text attractive to instructors."
-Mark Fox, University of Sheffield, UK
"The 2nd edition of Electronic, Magnetic, and Optical Materials retains the excellent text, figures and problems of the 1st edition. A much needed new chapter concerned with Optical Properties of Materials that properly couples the properties of dielectric materials with the former properties has been added. A second new chapter provides excellent explanations of the operation of solar cells and an up-to-date description of all the types of cells that are commercially available or poised to enter the market. This latter chapter is detailed in its explanations and provides a unique and valuable addition to the book that can be coupled with the chapter on Semiconductor Devices."
-Mark Davis, Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA
"The second edition of Electronic, Magnetic and Optical Materials is a welcome update of the 2010 original. The book delivers valuable and comprehensive information on materials science and its applications ...an excellent resource for students and instructors alike, and I would recommend it to others without hesitation."
-Mustafa Serdar Karakas, Cankaya University, Ankara, Turkey
"The book aims first for an intuitive understanding of the subject and is well suited for an undergraduate with a materials science background."
- Prabhakar R. Bandaru, University of California, San Diego, USA
"This is the book which can make the student's first encounter with the science of material properties an exciting journey rather than tedious trek. It is perfect for the students in electrical and (less) mechanical engineering. Perfect balance of fundamental physics and practical technology."
-Jacob Khurgin, Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, Maryland, USA
