The Fourth  Edition of Principles of Electronic Materials and Devices is a totally  revised and updated edition that has new topics, more sections, more explanations, more illustrations, more photos, more solved problems and worked examples, more home work problems, numerous practical applications.

The Fourth Edition continues to be an introductory up-to-date textbook in electronic materials devices suitable for a half or one semester course at the undergraduate level in electrical engineering, materials science, engineering physics, physics and chemistry departments.

The principles are developed with the minimum of mathematics and with the emphasis on physical concepts. Just about every concept has a clear illustration to aid learning. There are numerous solved problems and worked examples to relate the concepts to practical devices or applications. Illustrations have been specially drawn to convey the concepts as clearly as possible. Numerous photos are included, some historical to make the learning experience as enjoyable as possible. The margins have equation names to locate equations and sections quickly. Each chapter-end has a list of defining terms where important terms are clearly defined. Cross-referencing has been minimized not only to avoid flipping pages back and forwards but to allow the instructor to cover chapters, or only certain sections, in the most convenient way; and not necessarily in the textbook sequence. More challenging problems or those that require additional math skills have been marked with an asterisk.

The Solutions Manual is in Word, so that instructors can actually modify the problems or change the quantities as they wish. The Instructor Power Point has all the illustrations in the book in color, has the photos, has numerous additional illustrations, explanations and most of the equations in the textbook.

Although written for undergraduate students, it can also be used at the graduate level as an introductory course by including some of the additional topics. It assumes that the students have covered calculus, differentiation and integration, and complex numbers.
