About these proceedings


In this book "surface science" is understood in a broad sense, taken to include two-dimensional structures such as thin films and superlattices. Thecontributions reflect current research activities in surface and thin-film science in Latin-America, presenting a clear picture of the research centers, equipment and expertise available in the region in this rapidly developing field of physics. The topics treated cover the whole spectrum of the subject, with the latest theoretical results beingreported alongside details of industrial applications such as materials characterization and photovoltaic cells. Surface scientists, engineers and research admistrators will find this volume of interest.
