Solid-State spectroscopy is a burgeoning field with applications in many branches of science, including physics, chemistry, biosciences, surface science, and materials science. Handbook of Applied Solid-State Spectroscopy brings together in one volume information about various spectroscopic techniques that is currently scattered in the literature of these disciplines. This concise yet comprehensive volume covers theory and applications of a broad range of spectroscopies, including NMR, NQR, EPR/ESR, ENDOR, scanning tunneling, acoustic resonance, FTIR, auger electron emission, x-ray photoelectron emission, luminescence, and optical polarization, and more. Emphasis is placed on fundamentals and current methods and procedures, together with the latest applications and developments in the field.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

From the reviews:

"This book is a comprehensive review of the theory and instrumentation of solid-state spectroscopy and its applications … . As such, it is a major contribution to the field and more than fulfils its objectives … . The chemical applications reviewed … are very comprehensive, making it an ideal desk reference or text … . Another positive pedagogical element is that certain topics are covered from more than one point of view. … I highly recommend the Handbook of Applied Solid State Spectroscopy … ." (Janice L. Musfeldt, Journal of the American Chemical Society, Vol. 129 (10), 2007)
