Das Buch behandelt drei physikalische Phänomene: die Bose-Einstein-Kondensation, Suprafluidität und Supraleitung. In seinem Aufbau verfolgt es das Ziel, die wesentlichen Konzepte und notwendigen mathematischen Formalismen zu motivieren. Das Buch beginnt mit dem einfachsten der drei Phänomene, der Bose-Einstein-Kondensation. Nach einem Überblick über grundlegenden Eigenschaften idealer Bose-Gase werden Verfahren zum Einfangen und Kühlen von Atomen vorgestellt, um schließlich auf die Realisierung von Bose-Einstein-Kondensaten in verdünnten atomaren Gasen eingehen zu können. Aufgrund von Zusammenfassungen und weiterführenden Literaturangaben ist das Werk gleichermaßen zum Selbststudium geeignet wie zur vertiefenden Vorlesungsbegleitung. Zahlreiche Übungsaufgaben, teils mit Lösungen und Hinweisen, ermöglichen die unmittelbare Überprüfung des Gelernten.

The Physics of Solids

Essentials and Beyond

Solid State Physics emphasizes a few fundamental principles and extracts from them a wealth of information. This approach also unifies an enormous and diverse subject which seems to consist of too many disjoint pieces. The book starts with the absolutely minimum of formal tools, emphasizes the basic principles, and employs physical reasoning (" a little thinking and imagination" to quote R. Feynman) to obtain results. Continuous comparison with experimental data leads naturally to a gradual refinement of the concepts and to more sophisticated methods. After the initial overview with an emphasis on the physical concepts and the derivation of results by dimensional analysis, The Physics of Solids deals with the Jellium Model (JM) and the Linear Combination of Atomic Orbitals (LCAO) approaches to solids and introduces the basic concepts and information regarding metals and semiconductors.

The work studies under different physical conditions the carrier contribution to elastic constants in heavily doped optoelectronic materials. In the presence of intense photon field the authors apply the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle to formulate electron statistics. Many open research problems are discussed and numerous potential applications as quantum sensors and quantum cascade lasers are presented.

The innovative text gives an introductory treatment of the optical properties of solids. The fundamental principles of absorption, reflection, luminescence and light scattering are discussed for a wide range of materials, including crystalline insulators and semiconductors, glasses, metals,and molecular materials. Classical and quantum models are used as appropriate, and the phenomena are well illustrated using recent experimental data. A particular feature is the inclusion of many new topics that have come to the fore in recent years and have not previously been covered in othersolid state texts at this level. Examples include semiconductor quantum wells, organic semiconductors, vibronic solid state lasers and nonlinear optics.The book is primarily written for physicists, but it will also be useful for electrical engineers, materials scientists, and physical chemists. The subject material is developed in a tutorial style, and includes worked examples, exercises, and chapter summaries for revision.

This book discusses the computational approach in modern statistical physics, adopting simple language and an attractive format of many illustrations, tables and printed algorithms. The discussion of key subjects in classical and quantum statistical physics will appeal to students, teachers and researchers in physics and related sciences. The focus is on orientation with implementation details kept to a minimum. - ;This book discusses the computational approach in modern statistical physics in a clear and accessible way and demonstrates its close relation to other approaches in theoretical physics. Individual chapters focus on subjects as diverse as the hard sphere liquid, classical spin models, single quantum particles and Bose-Einstein condensation. Contained within the chapters are in-depth discussions of algorithms, ranging from basic enumeration methods to modern Monte Carlo techniques. The emphasis is on orientation, with discussion of implementation details kept to a minimum. Illustrations, tables and concise printed algorithms convey key information, making the material very accessible. The book is completely self-contained and graphs and tables can readily be reproduced, requiring minimal computer code. Most sections begin at an elementary level and lead on to the rich and difficult problems of contemporary computational and statistical physics. The book will be of interest to a wide range of students, teachers and researchers in physics and the neighbouring sciences. An accompanying CD allows incorporation of the book's content (illustrations, tables, schematic programs) into the reader's own presentations. - ;'This book is the best one I have reviewed all year.'

Die große Stärke des Ashcroft liegt in den ausführlichen Erklärungen, die didaktisch geschickt aufeinander aufbauen. Tiefer gehende quantenmechanische Rechnungen werden vermieden. Stattdessen wird mit logischer Klarheit und sehr geschickt ein anschauliches Bild der Festkörperphysik entwickelt, das dem Anfänger in der Festkörperphysik den Einstieg in das schwierige Fach erleichtert. Das Buch fängt mit klassischen Erklärungsmodellen des Festkörpers an, zeigt deren Begrenztheit auf und führt die Quantenmechanik schrittweise ein, um die Modelle immer weiter zu verfeinern. So entsteht mit einem Minimum an mathematischem Rüstzeug ein ausgesprochen detailliertes Bild des Festkörpers, und dem Leser wird es durch die allmähliche Steigerung zu abstrakteren Theorien leicht gemacht, sich von den Autoren führen zu lassen. Auf die ausführliche Beschreibung experimenteller Arbeiten wird in diesem Buch verzichtet. Das heißt aber nicht, dass auf experimentelle Ergebnisse kein Bezug genommen wird. Stets werden die Theorien an den experimentellen Werten gemessen und existierende Abweichungen zum Anlass für tiefergehende Betrachtungen genommen.
