Solid state physics is the branch of physics that is primarily devoted to the study of matter in its solid phase, especially at the atomic level. This prestigious serial presents timely and state-of-the-art reviews pertainingto all aspects of solid state physics.This latest volume in the series is devoted to the science underpinning two cutting edge areas: protein crystallization and semiconductor nanostructures. The extended and very complete review by E. Runge was awarded this year's Karl-Scheel Prize for "the outstanding publication by a young physicist from Berlin".

"Outrivals all existing reviews. It is a must for researchers in low-dimensional physics, as well as for all those who want to know more about the latest evolution in this fascinating field." —SEMICONDUCTOR, SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY "A high standard is expected from the contributors and this volume certainly measures up to this requirement. This work should be available in libraries covering solid state physics and will be consulted by physicists, materials scientists, and chemists." -PHYSICS IN TECHNOLOGY
