Product Description

About the Author

Dr. S O Pillai with a total teaching experience of thirty eight years had the privilege of serving as Reader and Professor in the last twenty two years in the main campus of Anna University, Chennai. The healthy interactions with both BE and MSc students brought him blossom. This provided him the opportunity of preparing hand-written manuscripts with a view to bring out one or two textbooks in due course. The strength gained during the said period made him to continue the art of writing even after his retirement in 1998. He succeeded in bringing out more than half a dozen textbooks during the period 2000–2012. Two more books are under preparation.

Pillai guided many MPhil and MSc students in their projects and two of them earned the PhD degree. About 45 research papers with single authorship in the field of Ultrasonics and Materials Science and a valuable citation from the Governor of Tamil Nadu congratulating Pillai for his voluntary blood donation for fifteen times are some of his notable contributions.

The feedback from his students in appreciation of Pillai’s dedication, sincerity and his own methodology adopted in teaching the students without affiliation to caste, community and creed fetched him Dr. Radha Krishnan’s Best Teacher Award for the year 1989—1990.

The books authored by foreign writers are often too concise and do not provide ample background and mathematical analysis of concepts.This one on the other hand offers a complete analysis of the concept along with some history.I would especially recommend it for beginners for having a solid base in the field without any obscurity.

Solid state physics by SO Pillai is an excellent introductory text in the subject. A world class book by an Indian Professor, this book is even referred by none other than Mark Madou in his book 'Fundamentals of Micro fabrication'. Derivations are given step by step with necessary steps in between.
