"This is a very attractive book from the standpoint of topics covered, style, and level of presentation." M. Coplan, Choice "...I like this book very much. It provides an ideal introduction to the science behind the ongoing revolutions in microelectronics and microphotonics based on transistors and lasers. The author's enthusiasm for his subject is embodied in a presentation with careful craftsmanship as to principle and disarming charm in selection of materials and examples...designed excellent choice for an introductory course...Times have changed, and with them the curriculum should change as well. Tanner's book will make changing a pleasure for both students and instructors." J.C. Phillips, Physics Today
