Chapter Materials Physics

We discuss briefl y some basic topics in materials physics such as crystallography, lattice vibrations, band structure, x-ray diffraction, dielectric relaxation, nuclear magnetic resonance and Mössbauer effects in this chapter. These topics are an important part of the core of this book. Therefore, an initial analysis of these topics is useful, especially for those readers who do not have a solid background in materials physics, to understand some of the different problems that are examined later in the rest of the book.
