Partial contents:
The Wave-Particle Duality -- The Schrödinger Wave Equation -- Operators and Waves -- Hydrogen Atom -- Many-Electron Atoms -- The Emergence of Masers and Lasers -- The Emergence of Masers and Lasers -- Electronic Structure of Solids -- Charge Carriers in Semiconductors -- Semiconductor Lasers -- Relativity -- Particle Physics -- Nuclear Physics.
Abstract: Modern Physics for Scientists and Engineers provides an introduction to the fundamental concepts of modern physics and to the various fields of contemporary physics. The book's main goal is to help prepare engineering students for the upper division courses on devices they will later take, and to provide physics majors and engineering students an up-to-date description of contemporary physics. The book begins with a review of the basic properties of particles and waves from the vantage point of classical physics, followed by an overview of the important ideas of new quantum theory. It describes experiments that help characterize the ways in which radiation interacts with matter. Later chapters deal with particular fields of modern physics.
