For general readers. Explains basic ideas of quantum mechanics and the properties of matter
Magnetostriction and magnetoelastic quantum oscillations in p-type lead telluride by T. E Thompson( )

2 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A detailed experimental and theoretical study of quantum oscillations in the magnetostriction and Young's modulus of p-PbTe is presented. The valance band of PbTe is approximated by a spheroidal, nonparabolic model in which the effects of strain on the valance band parameters are described by a deformation potential model. Using appropriate thermodynamic derivatives of the modified Lifshitz-Kosevich expression for the oscillatory parts of the electronic free energy, it is shown that both types of oscillations arise mainly from relative shifts of the valance band maxima due to shear strains, accompanied by intervalley charge transfer. Band parameters derived from the periods, phases, and spin splitting of the oscillations are in generally good agreement with values reported by other workers. A detailed comparison is made of the experimentally observed oscillation amplitudes with those predicted by theory, and satisfactory agreement is found. The ratio of the amplitudes of the two effects yields a value of the valance band deformation potential in good agreement with a value found from piezoresistance experiments by Burke
Why things are the way they are by Qian zhuo si ka( )

3 editions published between 1998 and 2004 in English and Chinese and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This fascinating book explains why materials behave as they do. In a completely non-technical style, using only basic arithmetic, the author explains how the properties of materials result from the way they are composed of atoms and why they have the properties they do: for example, why copper and rubies are coloured, why metals conduct heat better than glass, why magnets attract iron nails but not brass pins, and how superconductors can conduct electricity without resistance. The book is intended for general readers, and uses mainly words, pictures and analogies, with only a minimum of very simple mathematics. The author explains how it is possible to understand the basic properties of matter, and translates the technical jargon of physics into a language that can be understood by anyone with an interest in science who wants to know why the world around us behaves in the way that it does

The Electromagnetic Properties of Condensed Matter( Book )

1 edition published in 1971 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The effect of impurities on thermal and electromagnetic properties of superconductors, phonon spectra, electron-phonon interactions, Fermi surfaces and electron energy bands, electron relaxation times and spin interactions were studied in normal and superconducting metals. The report very briefly lists the results from the research. Among the techniques used were electron tunneling, quantum oscillatory phenomena, spin and cyclotron resonance, galvanomagnetic and thermomagnetic methods. Impurity states in insulators were explored by ENDOR techniques. (Author)
