Physics of Surfaces and Interfaces
Covers the major developments in surfaces sciences of the last decades, from experimental tricks and basic techniques to the latest developments in experimental methods and theoretical understanding.
Uniquely integrates the physics of surfaces, thin films and interfaces, surface chemistry, thermodynamics, statistical physics and the physics of the solid/electrolyte interfaces in an integral approach
Provides both a reference book for the researcher as well as a study-text for graduate students in physics or chemistry with special interest in the surface sciences, material science, or the nanosciences.
Offers many insights and hints that have grown out of the authors’ decades-long experience. Readers may likewise appreciate the large variety of different topics treated, and covered with extended references.
Graduate students may benefit from the elementary introductions to the experimental techniques and to the theory behind the techniques and the phenomena.
Stresses physical concepts to keep the mathematical notation to a minimum, and 350 graphs and illustrations support the textual content.
