Adsorption on Solid Surfaces

  • Hans Lüth
Part of the Advanced Texts in Physics book series (ADTP)


In previous chapters we have considered two types of interfaces, the solidvacuum and the solid—solid interfaces. This last chapter is devoted to problems of the solid—gas interface. Some of the questions related to this interface have already been touched on in connection with film growth and the deposition of atoms and molecules to yield a second solid phase and thus a new solid—solid interface. In the present chapter we consider the interaction between a solid surface and foreign atoms in a more fundamental way.
