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

    Great book!! Multi-dimensional applications to solid state chemistry

    This book is a great introduction to defect chemistry with deeper concepts/applications that are relevant to more advanced readers. Interrelationships of diffusion, and conduction mechanisms are comprehensively derived. Supplementary Material sections at back demonstrate more complex derivations and concepts.
    Solid state technology (fuel cells, oxygen sensors, etc.) continually related to concepts throughout the text.
    Highly recommended to researchers/educators in solid state disciplines, as well as students at undergraduate, graduate and post-graduate level.
