Materials Science for Electrical and Electronic Engineers is a book designed for electrical and electronic engineers, not for materials scientists. Every explanation is rendered in its simplest and clearest form and as many relevant examples are included as possible. At every point, the author makes clear the direct relevance of every topic to the reader's main course of study: electrical and electronic engineering. The central theme is that the type of bonding in a solid not only controls its electrical properties but also, and just as directly, its mechanical properties and how things are made from it. Thus the reason why a copper wire can conduct electricity is exactly the same reason it can be drawn into a wire in the first place. The reason why a piece of porcelain does not conduct electricity is the same as why it cannot be rolled into its final shape as copper could and thus has to be made directly. This common origin of electrical and mechanical properties dictates the structure of the book. Key Features Concise; covers what's needed at this level without burrying the reader in unnecessary detail Focused on what electrical and electronic engineers need to know Exercises set in the text are answered at the back of the book, showing students how to tackle problems The writing is refreshingly relaxed, clear and confident, making concepts easy to understand and remember About the Author Ian Jones University of Birmingham Table of Contents Conductors, insulators, and semiconductors An introduction to metals Mechanical properties Manufacturing conductors Steel Electrochemistry: electroplating and corrosion Ceramics Plastics Semiconductors and the electronics industry Magnetic materials Superconductors and optical fibres TABLE OF CONTENTS Conductors, insulators and semiconductors An introduction to metals Mechanical properties Manufacturing conductors Steel Electrochemistry: Electroplating and corrosion Ceramics Plastics Semiconductors and the electronics industry Magnetic materials Superconductors and optical fibres
