Description - Physical Properties of Crystals by Siegfried Haussuhl
Modern semiconductor- or laser techniques would be unthinkable without a highly developed physics of solids. As taylored materials gain more and more significance, it is more important than ever to understand the basics of crystalline materials and the influence of their symmetry on phenomenological aspects. This book chiefly aims to impart the knowledge which is necessary to comprehend the manifold peculiarities of crystalline substances. In this second, completely revised and updated edition, the author focuses on the detailed discussion of the physical properties of two- and threedimensional crystals and provides practical aspects with respect to their measurement. Broad space is given to a coherent and comprehensive introduction to tensor calculation. The description of optical properties, electrical, thermal, and magnetic characteristics includes novel effects, e.g the Giant Magneto Resistance. The text is supplemented with numerous exercises and their solutions.

Author Biography - Siegfried Haussuhl
Siegfried Haussuhl, born in 1927, studied physics and chemistry at the University of Tubingen, Germany, where he received his Ph.D. in 1956. He subsequently became assistant lecturer at the same Institute, where he also qualified as a professor. In 1959, he was appointed to a professorship in crystallography at the University of Freiburg, and after five years changed to a similar position at the University of Cologne. Here, he became the Director of the institute and kept this appointment until 1993. Professor Haussuhl was awarded the Ernst Abbe prize of the German Mineralogical Society and the Carl Hermann Medal of the German Crystallographic Society. He has published more than 270 refereed papers and is co-founder resp. founder of such prominent societies as the German Society of Crystallography (DGK) and the German Association for Crystal Growth (DGKK). He was chief editor of the journal Zeitschrift fur Kristallographie and Editorial Board member of various other scientific journals such as Crystal Research and Technology.
