Physics of Dielectrics for the Engineer is a systematic attempt to clarify and correlate advanced concepts underlying the physics of dielectrics. It reviews the basics of electrostatics, the different models for the polarizability of atoms and molecules, and the macroscopic permittivity. It also discusses the behavior of matter in an alternating field in relation to complex permittivity, the interactions between field and matter, dissipative effects under high electric fields, the wide-gap semiconductor model, the types of charge carriers, and the main disruptive processes. Organized into three parts encompassing 12 chapters, this volume begins with an overview of the physical concepts involved in the behavior of insulating materials subjected to high electric fields. It then explores the potential of a group of charges, and dipoles induced in an applied field. The book explains statistical theories of dipole orientation in an applied field and theories relating molecular and macroscopic quantities. The propagation of an electromagnetic wave, dipole relaxation of defects in crystal lattices, and space-charge polarization and relaxation are also discussed. The book explains the uni-dimensional polar lattice, intrinsic and impurity conduction in wide-gap semiconductors, thermal runaway, and collision breakdown. Many problems with corresponding solutions are included to assist the reader. This book will benefit electrical engineers, as well as electrical engineering students, scientists, and technicians.

To enhance the nation's economic productivity and improve the quality of life worldwide, engineering education in the United States must anticipate and adapt to the dramatic changes of engineering practice. The Engineer of 2020 urges the engineering profession to recognize what engineers can build for the future through a wide range of leadership roles in industry, government, and academia--not just through technical jobs. Engineering schools should attract the best and brightest students and be open to new teaching and training approaches. With the appropriate education and training, the engineer of the future will be called upon to become a leader not only in business but also in nonprofit and government sectors. The book finds that the next several decades will offer more opportunities for engineers, with exciting possibilities expected from nanotechnology, information technology, and bioengineering. Other engineering applications, such as transgenic food, technologies that affect personal privacy, and nuclear technologies, raise complex social and ethical challenges. Future engineers must be prepared to help the public consider and resolve these dilemmas along with challenges that will arise from new global competition, requiring thoughtful and concerted action if engineering in the United States is to retain its vibrancy and strength.

This book is meant to help the many engineers who are thrust into an engineering management position with little or no training. The book will cover everything from “where to start” on your first day to the management process, which is a feedback process designed to manage the engineer. Finally, we will cover the “Art” of managing engineers, which will address many of the difficulties you will face in your job and end up with how to transform yourself from a great engineering manager to a leader and earn the respect of your team. The book is organized into seven chapters. It starts with a description of “what” really is an engineering manager. It addresses the roles and goals of the engineering manager and covers a few simple rules that are humorous but will serve you well. Next, the book goes into where to start. Many engineers are put into a management position after they have been with a team long enough or their boss has moved on. They have little or no training on what to do and will often mimic their boss’s behavior, which can be good or bad, depending on the boss that they had. Following this, the book goes into the Science of Engineering management. This is a process designed to manage the day to day activites of the engineer. Then, the book describes what I call the “Art” of the engineering manager. How to deal with the unique characteristics of many engineers as engineers in general can be very opinionated and difficult to manage. Finally, the book will address how to transform yourself from just managing the team, to becoming a leader and how to earn the respect of your team.
