In this book, single-electron circuits are studied as an introduction to the rapidly expanding field of nanoelectronics. Both the analysis and synthesis of circuits with the nanoelectronic metallic single-electron tunneling (SET) junction device are treated. The basic physical phenomena under consideration are the quantum mechanical tunneling of electrons through a small insulating gap between two metal leads, the Coulomb blockade and Coulomb oscillations the last two resulting from the quantization of charge. While electron transport in nanoelectronic devices can be best described by quantum physics, nanoelectronic circuits can be best described by Kirchhoffs voltage and current laws. The author employs an unconventional approach in explaining the operation and design of single-electron circuits. All models and equivalent circuits are derived from first principles of circuit theory. This is a must if we want to understand the characteristics of nanoelectronic devices and subcircuits.
Readership: Advanced undergraduate- and graduate-level students in electrical engineering, physics, nanotechnology, computer engineering and mechanical engineering, especially those with an interest in MEMS.

Spintronics explores the spin degree of freedom of the electron to sense, store, process, and transfer information in addition to the electron charge. Semiconductor spintronics promises to combine new spin enabling functionality with the present-day microelectronics and optoelectronics. It also opens the door to a new generation of devices, and to the merging of electronics, photonics, and magnetics. The success of spintronics relies on our ability to create and control spins. Among many obstacles, generation of electron spin polarization and coherence at room temperature is one of the most important as well as the most challenging issues, that have attracted intense research efforts during recent years. Significant progress has been made both theoretically and experimentally, while many issues remain unresolved. This book provides an in-depth review of the rapidly developing field of spintronic semiconductors. It covers a broad range of topics, including growth and basic physical properties of diluted magnetic semiconductors based on II-VI, III-V, and IV semiconductors, recent developments in theory and experimental techniques, and potential device applications.
Readership: Advanced undergraduate- and graduate-level students in semiconductor physics and technology, spintronics, researchers and engineers in spintronics, semiconductor physics and technology, and magnetism.

Power for the World The Emergence of Electricity from the Sun edited by Wolfgang Palz (WorldCouncilforRenewableEnergy,Germany)
The book concentrates on photovoltaic (PV) solar power and its scientific, technological, industrial, political, environmental, and social implications. Modern PV was invented in 1954 along with the transistor; only since 2005 have the PV markets seen an exponential growth: this year, global business stands at $30 billion. It involves hundreds of companies around the world, with 100,000 newly created jobs and tens of thousands of experts. The last specialised PV Conference in 2009 in Hamburg, Germany, had 5000 delegates; the associated exhibition was visited by 50,000 people from 100 nations more than the America Cup. The book comes in three parts: The Rising Sun in a Developing World, Solar Power for the World and PV Today and Forever. It provides a historical summary and gives a comprehensive overview of the present situation worldwide and future strategies for development and implementation. The author is a world leader in PV and all renewable energies. To write the book, the lead author W. Palz collaborated with some 41 VIPs in the sector from all over the world, and in particular from the US, Europe, China, and Japan. Some of them are PV specialists, some are from administrations such as the World B
