Light Scattering in Solids

  • M. Balkanski
Part of the NATO Advanced Study Institutes Series book series (volume 2)


A powerful way of investigating the fundamental properties of condensed matter is to consider the interaction of the radiation field with the solid. This interaction appears generally in two types of phenomena: resonance and scattering.
