Providing experimental and theoretical graduate students and researchers with a distinctive introduction to the principles governing polaron science, this book gives a clear guide to how different types of polaron form and the measurements used to identify them. The fundamental physics is emphasized and mathematical formalism is avoided.
About the Author
David Emin retired from Sandia National Laboratories and is currently Adjunct Professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy, University of New Mexico. He is best known for his work on polaron formation and motion and is often cited for his seminal contributions to the theories of self-trapping and hopping conduction's phonon-assisted transition rates, Hall Effect and Seebeck Effect.
