Part of the Springer Series in Surface Sciences book series (SSSUR, volume 30)


The study of solid surface phenomena is of great importance in physics since a solid sample is always in contact with other media (vapour, liquid...) via its surface. The existence of such an interface modifies, at least locally, the properties of the sample and it is through it that the interactions with the outside world occur. Therefore, surface physics finds applications in many technologies, for example, in heterogeneous catalysis (oil industry, ammonia synthesis...), microelectronics, electrochemistry, corrosion, photography, lubrication, adhesion, biology....
