Preparation of Well-Defined Surfaces and Interfaces

  • Hans Lüth


As is generally true in physics, in the field of surface and interface studies one wants to investigate model systems which are simple in the sense that they can be characterized mathematically by a few definite parameters that are determined from experiments. Only for such systems can one hope to find a theoretical description which allows one to predict new properties. The understanding of such simple model systems is a condition for a deeper insight into more complex and more realistic ones.
