Springer | 2002 | ISBN: 0792376293 | 656 pages | PDF | 14,2 MB
Solid state Engineering is a multi-disciplinary field that combines disciplines such as physics, chemistry, electrical engineering, materials science and mechanical engineering. It provides the means to understand matter and to design and control its properties. The 20th century has witnessed the phenomenal rise of natural science and technology into all aspects of human life. Three major sciences have emerged and marked this century. Physical science which has strived to understand the structure of atoms through quantum mechanics, Life Sciences which has attempted to understand the structure of cells and the mechanisms of life through biology and genetics, and Information Sciences which has symbiotically developed the communicative and computational means to advanced natural science.
