Description: 

Focuses on the essential physical parameters of solids that make devices so important: elastic and thin-film properties (i.e. MEMS devices); electromechanical, piezoelectric and ferroelectric properties; paramagnetism and ferromagnetism; electron transport properties (metals and semiconductors); electronic bandgap and bandgap-engineering; and the essential role of crystallinity in enhancing desired parameters (i.e. dielectric function in ferroelectrics or electron mobility in semiconductors).
