A comprehensive overview of defects in solids

Defects play an important part in defining both the chemical and physical behavior of a material. In fact, the manipulation of defects underlies the development of the modern silicon-based computer industry, solid-state lasers, battery science, solid oxide fuel cells, hydrogen storage, and display technologies. This guide describes defects, how they form, and how they influence physical properties in order to help scientists manipulate them in the development of new or improved materials. Including an introduction and advanced applications, Defects in Solids:

  • Covers the basic concepts in the chemistry and physics of defects

  • Links principles to real-world applications

  • Covers cutting-edge applications, including solid-state batteries, fast-ion conductors, fuel cells and sensors, and cuprate superconductors

  • Includes detailed chapters on: point defect chemistry; linear and planar defects; nonstoichiometry and crystal structure; diffusion in solids; ionic conductivity; intrinsic and extrinsic electronic conductivity; and magnetic and optical defects

  • Features introductory questions at the beginning of each chapter to help readers focus, plus end-of-chapter questions

With a strong emphasis on areas of recent research that represent exciting frontiers, this is a great resource for academic and industrial researchers in materials engineering, semiconductors, information storage and transmission, LCD technologies, and related fields. It's also an excellent text for upper-level undergraduate and graduate students in materials science and engineering, solid-state chemistry and physics, and inorganic chemistry.
