Excellent bridge between general solid-state physics textbook and research articles packed with providing detailed explanations of the electronic, vibrational, transport, and optical properties of semiconductors

"The most striking feature of the book is its modern outlook ... provides a wonderful foundation. The most wonderful feature is its efficient style of exposition ... an excellent book." Physics Today

"Presents the theoretical derivations carefully and in detail and gives thorough discussions of the experimental results it presents. This makes it an excellent textbook both for learners and for more experienced researchers wishing to check facts. I have enjoyed reading it and strongly recommend it as a text for anyone working with semiconductors ... I know of no better text ... I am sure most semiconductor physicists will find this book useful and I recommend it to them." Contemporary Physics

Offers much new material: an extensive appendix about the important and by now well-established, deep center known as the DX center, additional problems and the solutions to over fifty of the problems at the end of the various chapters.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"The most striking feature of the book is its modern outlook ... provides a wonderful foundation. The most wonderful feature is its efficient style of exposition ... an excellent book." Physics Today

"This book, aimed at postgraduates not undergraduates, exemplifies both the difficulty of the subject and its variety. It presents the theoretical derivations carefully and in detail and gives thorough discussions of the experimental results it presents. This makes it an excellent textbook both for learners and for more experienced researchers wishing to check facts. I have enjoyed reading it and strongly recommend it as a text for anyone working with semiconductors ... I know of no better text ... I am sure most semiconductor physicists will find this book useful and I recommend it to them." Contemporary Physics

From the reviews of the fourth edition:

"Fundamentals of Semiconductors by Yu and Cardona, here at the fourth edition, is a book aimed at postgraduate ... students. ... provides the students with a solid and up-to-date background of the physical properties of semiconductors. ... Yu and Cardona present in their book a concise, personal and yet satisfactory list of topics. ... presentations are particularly inspiring and enlightening, giving a direct insight into the motivations and into paths which led researchers to fundamental advances in semiconductor physics." (S. Sanguinetti, Il Nuovo Saggiatore, Vol. 27 (5-6), 2011)

"It provides first-time users, especially the graduate students at whom the text is primarily aimed, with a sense of the dynamism of the subject. Overall, this book remains the best graduate-level text on semiconductor physics that I know, and I recommend it very strongly." (A. M. Fox, Contemporary Physics, February, 2012)
