Optical Properties of Functional Polymers and Nano Engineering Applications Vaibhav Jain Naval Research Lab, Washington, DC, USA

Akshay Kokil University of Massachusetts, Lowell, USA Nanotechnology and Application Series

Functional polymers are an increasingly important class of materials relevant not only in academic research but also in industry. Optical Properties of Functional Polymers and Nano Engineering Applications introduces the ability of nano-engineering to improve the optical properties of the mentioned applications. This book focuses on the optical properties and nano-engineering applications of functional polymers, in order to compile an informative reference to the reader. Catalog no. K15445, August 2013, c. 350 pp. ISBN: 978-1-4665-5690-4, $159.95 / £99.00 Also available as an eBook


Solar-Grade Silicon Refining and Recycling Lifeng Zhang and Anping Dong Missouri University of Science and Technology, Rolla, USA

Lucas Nana Wiredu Damoah This timely book presents the process, metallurgy, and technologies for the refining and recycling of silicon solar cells. In addition to describing solar cell production process, the authors examine methods for improving solar cell quality, propose a new approach to purify silicon, and describe future solar energy development. They also introduce several low-cost, environmentally friendly, efficient, and fast processes for recycling silicon waste—top-cut scraps and sawing slurry—including high temperature remelting, bubble flotation, centrifugation, and filtration. Catalog no. K13100, July 2013, c. 280 pp. ISBN: 978-1-4398-6818-8, $179.95 / £114.00 Also available as an eBook

Electromagnetic Waves, Materials, and Computation with MATLAB ®

Dikshitulu K. Kalluri University of Massachusetts, Lowell, USA

“… a required reference in the library of anyone doing research or development in plasma physics or engineering.” —Igor Alexeff, University of Tennessee

“... a meticulously written and extremely useful book for both students and professionals ... The approach is especially directed toward electrical engineers whose deeper appreciation of circuits is exploited to help their concept building, [as applied in] transmission line analogies.” —Michael A. Fiddy, University of North Carolina at Charlotte A solutions manual and figure slides are available upon qualifying course adoption.

Introduction to Organic Electronic and Optoelectronic Materials and Devices Edited by

Sam-Shajing Sun and Larry R. Dalton Reflecting the rapid growth in research and development on organic/polymeric electronic and photonic materials and devices over the last few decades, this volume provides comprehensive coverage. It examines organic semiconducting, conducting, and superconducting materials; field effect transistors (FETs); nonvolatile organic thin-film memory devices; and organic, electro-optic or opto-electronic materials. It presents the most widely recognized fundamentals, principles, and mechanisms along with representative examples, key experimental data, and more than 200 illustrative figures. The book includes questions for each chapter and an accompanying CD with a self-study lecture in PowerPoint®. A solutions manual is available upon qualifying course adoption
