Optical Properties of Solids
by Frederick Wooten
Publisher: Academic Press 1972
Number of pages: 260
The present book attempts to fill a need for a fundamental textbook which explains the optical properties of solids. It is meant to explain a number of important concepts rather than present a complete survey of experimental data.

This paper reviews the history and the state of the art in optical-clock research and addresses the implementation of optical clocks in a possible future redefinition of the SI second as well as in tests of fundamental physics.

A broad overview of the basic physical processes that govern the interaction between the light and semiconductor. The text shows the richness of the topic and shows the thread connecting the original research of the sixties and today's literature.

What the heck is a photon, anyway? You need to understand Maxwell's equations and quantum mechanics, and to understand how they fit together. This text won't teach you quantum electrodynamics. But they'll give you a nudge in the right direction.

This book moves from the quantum-statistical description to the validity of classical modeling; it presents some perspectives in the algorithmic and in the enhanced sampling approaches, tackling some longstanding challenges to simulation ...
