Material Science has become a very important subject as an interdisciplinary course in almost all universities. Keeping this in view this ebook has been developed and carries the subject matter for B.E. (Material Science and Metallurgy/Production Engineering/Mechanical Engineering), A.M.I.E., Diploma in engineering, M.Sc. (Material Science/Physics/Chemistry) and B.Sc. (Hons.) courses as per their latest syllabii. It is also useful for UPSC, GATE, NET, SLET and other entrance examinations.
A reasonably wide coverage in sufficient depth has been attempted, giving the importance to the basic principles, essential theory and experimental details necessary for understanding the nature, properties and applications of materials. All efforts have been made to provide topics which are of great use to the readers, e.g. semiconductors, superconductors, polymers, composites, nanostructured materials, etc. Latest developments, e.g. quantum dots, spinotrics, MOSFET, Microelectronic circuits, MEMS, nanotechnology, etc. are also covered.
To make the text more useful, good number of worked out problems, review questions, problems, short question answers, typical objective questions, suggested readings are provided with each chapter.
