Characterization of Surfaces

  • Guy D. Davis

Abstract

Surface and interface science, the study of the physics, chemistry, metallurgy, and engineering of the two-dimensional boundaries between a material and its environment or between two discrete constituents of a solid, is concerned with solid-vacuum, solid-gas, solid-liquid, and solid-solid interfaces. The analysis of the properties of surfaces is becoming increasingly important in studies of a wide range of processes, including adhesive bonding and failure analysis, and is critical for the improvement of technology in general.(1)

Keywords
