Description 1 online resource (xi, 352 pages) : illustrations
Contents Transfer matrix -- Rectangular potentials -- [delta]-function potential -- Kronig-Penney model -- Tight binding model -- Tight binding models of crystals -- Disordered models -- Numerical solution of the Schrödinger equation -- Transmission and reflection of plane electromagnetic waves on an interface -- Transmission and reflection coefficients for a slab -- Surface waves -- Resonant tunneling through double-layer structures -- Layered electromagnetic medium : photonic crystals -- Effective parameters -- Wave propagation in nonlinear structures -- Left-handed materials -- Matrix operations -- Summary of electrodynamics formulas
Summary This textbook offers the first unified treatment of wave propagation in electronic and electromagnetic systems and introduces readers to the essentials of the transfer matrix method, a powerful analytical tool that can be used to model and study an array of problems pertaining to wave propagation in electrons and photons. It is aimed at graduate and advanced undergraduate students in physics, materials science, electrical and computer engineering, and mathematics, and is ideal for researchers in photonic crystals, negative index materials, left-handed materials, plasmonics, nonlinear effects
