Title  Electronic Band Structure Engineering and Ultrafast Dynamics of Dirac Semimetals 
Author(s)  Bao, Changhua 
Publication  Singapore, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Nature Singapore, 2023. 
Description  XIV, 81 p. 56 illus., 53 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book highlights the doctoral research of the author on electronic band structure engineering and ultrafast dynamics of Dirac semimetals. Dirac semimetals exhibit unique electronic band structure and novel physical properties with rich lightmatter interaction, which inspires a wide range of potential applications. Enabling band engineering and revealing ultrafast dynamics of Dirac semimetals is therefore important. In the research work covered by the book, the first ultrafast time and angleresolved photoemission spectroscopy with tunable probe photon energy is developed, providing new opportunities for exploring ultrafast dynamics in 3D quantum materials. Using the spectroscopy, the author investigates the band structure engineering and ultrafast dynamics of Dirac semimetals, realizing the longsoughtafter chiral symmetry breaking in a Kekul??ordered graphene with flat band and revealing the ultrafast dynamics of Dirac fermions in 3D Dirac semimetal for the first time. The work advances the research of the electronic structure of Dirac semimetals in two aspects. Firstly, it identifies the Kekul??ordered graphene as a new system for exploring chiral symmetry breaking related physics and flat band induced instability, providing a very rare system to investigate their interplay. Secondly, it solves the longstanding challenge of directly visualizing the nonequilibrium electronic structure of 3D Dirac semimetal and opens up new opportunities for exploring the lightmatter interaction in 3D quantum materials, especially the lightinduced topological phase transitions in 3D topological materials

Title  Topological Phases in Condensed Matter Physics 
Author(s)  Basu, Saurabh 
Publication  Singapore, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Nature Singapore, 2023. 
Description  XIX, 217 p. 77 illus., 59 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  The book is mainly designed for postgraduate students to learn modernday condensed matter physics. While emphasizing an experiment called the ???Quantum Hall effect???, it introduces the subject of 'Topology' and how the topological invariants are related to the quantization of the Hall plateaus. Thus, the content tries to deliver an account of the topological aspects of materials that have shaped the study of condensed matter physics in recent times. The subject is often quite involved for a student to grasp the fundamentals and relate them to physical phenomena. Further, these topics are mostly left out of the undergraduate curriculum, although they often require a simplistic view of the concepts involved to be presented pedagogically. The book contains examples, workedout concepts, important derivations, diagrams for illustration, etc. to aid the understanding of the students. The book also emphasizes the experimental discoveries that put the subject in its perspective and elaborate on the applications which are likely to be of interest to scientists and engineers

Title  Solid State Theory, Volume 2 : Applications: Nonequilibrium, Behavior in External Fields, Collective Phenomena 
Author(s)  Czycholl, Gerd 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2023. 
Description  X, 390 p. 114 illus., 42 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  The present volume 2 covers advanced topics in theoretical solid state physics and thus ties in directly with the fundamentals. Solids in external fields or more generally in nonequilibrium and deviations from the ideal 3dimensional crystal structure (surfaces, impurities, lowdimensional structures, quantum dots, etc.) are treated. The consideration of collective phenomena such as superconductivity and magnetism complete the presentation. The reader is assumed to have knowledge of the contents of Volume 1 (electrons and phonons in ideal crystals, Bloch theorem, occupation number representation or 2nd quantization, electronelectron and electronphonon interaction) as well as the basic knowledge of general theoretical physics (mechanics, electrodynamics, quantum mechanics, and statistical physics) usually available after a bachelor's degree in physics. Volume 2 is thus ideally suited for students in the master's program in physics who wish to specialize in (experimental or theoretical) solidstate physics. Addressing current topics (e.g., Kondo effect, fractional quantum Hall effect, 2dimensional crystals such as graphene, giant magnetoresistance effect, and others) provides an optimal transition to modern research. The new edition has been completely revised, with numerous exercises added and existing ones redesigned, with the associated solutions now included in the book. The author Studied physics in Cologne, diploma in 1974, doctorate in 1977 at the University of Cologne, then postdoc (scientific assistant) at the University of Dortmund and 198384 at Stanford University, habilitation in 1985 at the University of Dortmund, then temporary professorships in Dortmund and 19871990 at RWTH Aachen. Since 1991 Professor of Theoretical Physics at the University of Bremen. The translation was done with the help of artificial intelligence. A subsequent human revision was done primarily in terms of content

Author(s)  Wang, Zhong Lin;Zhang, Yan;Hu, Weiguo 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Nature Switzerland, 2023. 
Description  XIV, 570 p. 306 illus., 302 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  Coauthored by the discoverer of the piezotronic effect, this book is a fundamental and comprehensive survey of piezotronics and piezophototronics. Piezotronics is a term broadly applied to devices fabricated using the piezopotential as a ???gate??? voltage to tune/control charge carrier transport at a contact or junction. The piezophototronic effect describes the use of the piezopotential to control the carrier generation, transport, separation and/or recombination for improving the performance of optoelectronic devices. The book first introduces the theory of the piezotronic effect and its applications in transistors, sensors, and catalysis. Subsequent chapters comprehensively cover the fundamentals of the piezophototronic effect and its impacts on photon sensors, solar cells, and LEDs. The updated and significantly expanded second edition covers the most recent advances and breakthroughs in this field over the last decade ??? gas, chemical, and biological nanosensors; quantumdots, wells, and wires; piezocatalysis; the piezophotonic effect; and the pyrophototronic effect. This seminal book serves as a basic text for scientists and students in the field of piezotronic devices and thirdgeneration semiconductors

Title  Theory of Disordered Solids : From Atomistic Dynamics to Mechanical, Vibrational, and Thermal Properties 
Author(s)  Zaccone, Alessio 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2023. 
Description  XVII, 299 p. 1 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book presents a consistent mathematical theory of the nonelectronic physical properties of disordered and amorphous solids, starting from the atomiclevel dynamics and leading to experimentally verifiable descriptions of macroscopic properties such as elastic and viscoelastic moduli, plasticity, phonons and vibrational spectra, and thermal properties. This theory begins with the assumption of the undeniable existence of an ???amorphous lattice???, which allows one to relegate the theoretical uncertainties about the ultimate nature of the glass transition to a subsidiary role and thus take a more pragmatic approach towards the modelling of physical properties. The book introduces the reader not only to the subtle physical concepts underlying the dynamics, mechanics, and statistical physics of glasses and amorphous solids, but also to the essential mathematical and numerical methods that cannot be readily gleaned from specialized literature since they are spread out among many often technically demanding papers. These methods are presented in this book in such a way as to be sufficiently general, allowing for the mathematical or numerical description of novel physical phenomena observed in many different types of amorphous solids (including soft and granular systems), regardless of the atomistic details and particular chemistry of the material. This monograph is aimed at researchers and graduatelevel students in physics, materials science, physical chemistry and engineering working in the areas of amorphous materials, soft matter and granular systems, statistical physics, continuum mechanics, plasticity, and solid mechanics. It is also particularly well suited to those working on molecular dynamics simulations, molecular coarsegrained simulations, as well as ab initio atomistic and DFT methods for solidstate and materials science
