Optical Processes in Solids describes the principles of this spectroscopic study with the help of illustrative comparisons of theoretical and experimental results that take into account the revolutionary progress brought about by the use of intense lasers and high-energy synchrotron light. Electronic versus nuclear motions and the optical spectra of localized electrons in solids -- 5. Lattice vibrations -- 6. Electric susceptibility and the dielectric constant -- 7. One electron states in solids -- 8. Excitons -- 9. Polarons and the self-trapped state -- Optical spectra of excitons in the phonon field -- . OPTICAL PROCESSES IN SOLIDS It is known from theory and from comparison with experiment that optical spectra and their lineshapes can tell us much about the microscopic motion of the constituent particles of matter – electrons and nuclei. A unifying element that links the apparently diverse phenomena observed in optical pro-. We will confine ourselves to solids and study some simple characteristics of the atomic motions within them – lattice vibrations – brought about by the periodic structure of the crystal lattice. The lattice vibrations will turn out to be a prototype of elementary excitations in a solid, other examples of which will be given in later sections.

Unfortunately, such study is a bit lacking in the standard undergraduate physics curriculum. Maybe, we can encounter optical properties of materials in an optics course or in solid state physics at the senior level. Typically, these courses cover a wide range of topics, Cited by: This comprehensive textbook and reference covers all phenomena involving light in semiconductors, emphasizing modern applications in semiconductor lasers, electroluminescence, photodetectors, photoconductors, photoemitters, polarization effects, absorption spectroscopy, radiative transfers and reflectance modulatons.

Optical Processes in Solids by Yutaka Toyozawa. A unifying element that links the apparently diverse phenomena observed in optical processes is the dielectric dispersion of matter. It describes the response of matter to incoming electromagnetic waves and charged particles, and thus predicts their behavior in the self-induced field of matter, known as polariton and polaron effects.
