Oops! She did it again. Pop icon Britney Spears is breaking all the boundaries Madonna left standing by entering the complicated field of semiconductors.
Britney's Guide to Semiconductor Physics at http://britneyspears.ac/lasers.htm contains a guide that covers the basics of semiconductors, tricks for making p-n junctions, radiative and non-radiative transition tips, the ins and outs of edge-emitting laser operation, and pointers for understanding photonic crystals. A "Lip-glossary" contains an A-to-Z listing of common industry terms, a periodic table, physical constants for "calculating stuff," and important physical properties of semiconductor materials. The site is complete with honest-to-goodness diagrams and charts, helpful equations, and lots and lots of fabulous Britney photos—not to mention official wallpaper featuring Britney practicing her moves in the lab. Finally a place online you and your teenagers can share!
There's even an automatic newsfeed featuring semiconductor, optoelectronics, and of course, late-breaking Britney news. Come on baby, hit her site one more time.
