Summary
"How do superconductors function? What's unique about semiconductors? A look at developments over the past 50 years of solid state physics and materials science, written comprehensibly even for the non-scientist. The author presents pioneering works by researchers in the fields of chemistry, physics, and material science, drawing on authentic quotations and extracts from partly unpublished records to create an entertaining, descriptive, and exciting expedition through the world of solid state physics."--BOOK JACKET
