This short chapter gives a glimpse of how concepts studied in other areas of physics, e.g., energy losses of ionizing particles in matter, connect to solid-state physics. The basic ideas behind transistors are discussed, and a topic of current research interest is introduced: creation of vacancies in diamond by electron irradiation. It is also shown that a lot about magnetic domains can be understood from “back-of-the-envelope” estimates.

Keywords:   solid-state physics, transistor, magnetic domains, vacancies, diamond, electron irradiation
