** About the book** Physics of Atoms, Molecules, Solids and Nuclei provides the foundation for much of one’s future work in atomic, molecular, solid state and nuclear physics. The topics include – The Schrödinger wave equation and its simple applications, Atomic spectra of hydrogen atom, One valence system, Two valence system and the effects of external field, X-ray spectra, Molecular spectra of diatomic molecule, Raman effect, Essential o laser action, Crystal structure, chemical bonding, Thermal properties of solids, Free electron and band theory of solids, magnetic and superconducting properties. The book also describe the basic properties of Nuclei, Radioactivity, Alpha, Beta and Gamma decay, Nuclear models, Nuclear reactions, detectors, and elementary particles.
This book meant for undergraduate and postgraduate students of Engineering, Physics and Chemistry provides a comprehensive treatment of important concepts of modern physics in twenty one chapters and includes all mathematical steps for complete understanding. |
