Summary

This text primarily explains the connection between the basic principles of chemistry and physics and the properties of engineering materials - metals, semiconductors, polymers, ceramics, glasses, and composites. Coverage includes electrical, optical, magnetic, and superconducting properties. The text approaches the properties of electrons in solids from two complementary approaches: the atoms to molecules to solids approach popular with chemists and the nearly-free-electron approach popular with physicists. The book has a strong focus on the optical properties of solids, especially color, and frequent use of actual engineering applications.

Author Bio

Livingston, Jim :

After retiring from the Materials Department of General Electric's Research and Development Center, Jim Livingston has been teaching undergraduate materials science at MIT since 1989. While working at GE, his research areas included hard and soft magnetic materials, high-field and high-temperature superconductors, dislocations, mechanical properties, and eutectic and eutectoid transformations.

Livingston earned a Bachelor of Engineering Physics at Cornell University, and an M.A. and Ph.D. at Harvard University. Along with writing over 150 technical articles, he has also authored a monograph on the metallurgy of superconductors and a popular-science book Driving Force: The Natural Magic of Magnets. Jim is a member of the National Academy of Engineering, a Fellow of ASM International and the American Physical Society, and a member of TMS, MRS, AAAS, and the IEEE Magnetics Society.
