Morphology and Structure of Surfaces and Interfaces

  • Hans Lüth
Part of the Springer Study Edition book series (SSE)

Abstract

To begin with, it will be useful to give a brief definition of the terms morphology and structure. The term morphology is associated with a macroscopic property of solids. The word originates from the Greek μορφή, which means form or shape, and here it will be used to refer to the macroscopic form or shape of a surface or interface. Structure, on the other hand, is associated more with a microscopic, atomistic picture and will be used to denote the detailed geometrical arrangement of atoms and their relative positions in space.
