Physics and applications
Sindhunil Barman Roy
There have been many recent developments in the physics and materials science of Mott insulators, especially their recognition as emergent materials for important and innovative device applications such as information processing and storage, and the possibilities of even further applications in optical and thermal switches, thermo-chromic devices, gas sensors and even solar cell applications. Aimed at advanced undergraduate students of physics, chemistry, materials science, and electrical and electronics engineering, this book introduces the subject and reviews present knowledge in the field, enabling students and researchers to get acquainted with this very interesting and emerging area of science and technology. Professional researchers in academic institutions and industries already engaged in the programmes of correlated electron materials and devices will also find this title of use.
