Handbook of Spin Transport and Materials and Magnetism - (CRC Press - Taylor & Francis Group) provides a comprehensive, balanced account of the state of the art in the field known as spin electronics or spintronics. It reveals how key phenomena first discovered in one class of materials, such as spin injection in metals, have been revisited decades later in other materials systems, including silicon, organic semiconductors, carbon nanotubes, graphene, and carefully engineered nanostructures.
Two book projects were published by Springer in Berlin: "Handbook of Advanced Magnetic Materials", edited by Y. Liu, D. J. Sellmyer, and D. Shindo, and "Advanced Magnetic Nanostructures", edited by D. J. Sellmyer and R. Skomski. Very recently, a third book, "Biomedical Applications of Nanotechnology", edited by V. Labhasetwar and D L. Leslie-Pelecky, was published by Wiley, New York. Another book, "Simple Models of Magnetism" by R. Skomski, was published by Oxford University Press in 2008 and focuses on the physical understanding of magnetism.Antiplane Motions of Piezoceramics and Acoustic Wave Devices by Jiashi Yang World Scientific Books 2010 summer.
