Light-Driven Alignment

  • Deals with a new method to control electron transport by light to control material formation processes in a new way

  • Summarizes the current state of the art in light-driven alignment

  • A reference work for researchers and engineers alike


Part of the Springer Series in Optical Sciences book series (SSOS, volume 141)

About this book


This book deals with influencing the properties of solids by light-driven electron transport. The theoretical basis of these effects, light-driven ordering and self-organisation, as well as optical motors are presented. With light as a tool, new ways to produce materials are opened.
