The Encyclopedia of Materials: Electronics will provide a compilation of all aspects of electronic materials and devices, i.e., the science, engineering, and technology. The study of electronic materials is truly multidisciplinary, therefore the contributors to and the audience for this work will be from the fields of materials science, engineering, physics, and chemistry.Electronic materials, integrated into numerous devices, are widely used in almost all sectors including information and communication technology, automation and control, robotics, manufacturing, process industries, instrumentation, energy and power systems, healthcare, and defence and security. As the basis of the current age of electronics, information and communication technology, this area of science will play an influential role in the future.This title will provide users with a single and unique reference source for fundamental and applied research in electronic materials, incorporating elements from many different disciplines and applications. The work will be invaluable resource for libraries in universities, research organizations, and manufacturing and technology companies. Given the rapid expansion of publications in this field, the compilation of definitive reviews of this kind is especially important and invaluable.

Key Features
