About this book

Introduction

Designed as a textbook for advanced undergraduate and graduate students in engineering and physical sciences who are seeking a general overview of surface science, this book also provides the necessary background for researchers just starting out in the field. It covers all the most important aspects of modern surface science, from the experimental background and crystallographic basics to modern analytical techniques and applications to thin films and nanostructures. All topics are presented in a concise and clear form accessible to a beginner. At the same time, the coverage is comprehensive and at a high technical level, with emphasis on the fundamental physical principles. Numerous examples, references, practice exercises, and problems complement this remarkably complete treatment, which will also serve as an excellent reference for researchers and practitioners.

From the reviews:

PHYSICS TODAY, OCTOBER 2004

Review by John T. Yates Jr., University of Pittsburgh

"Surface Science: An Introduction is an excellent book that reviews many of the centrally important features of this interdisciplinary field. … The text is smoothly written and interesting. Readers will be immediately impressed by the quality and number of figures (372 in all) used to tell the story. Surface Science is designed for advanced undergraduate or graduate students in the engineering and physical sciences. It also serves as an introduction for researchers entering the field. Many earlier surface-science textbooks have concentrated on the experimental techniques used for measurements in the field. Surface Science also describes numerous experimental methods, but its main focus is on the concepts central to the field. After the introduction, the book presents an excellent chapter on two-dimensional crystallography; a chapter on experimental background follows, and the book then progresses through four chapters on surface analysis--from diffraction to electron spectroscopy, ion probes, and microscopy. The book proceeds to atomic and electronic structure of surfaces. The final four chapters discuss surfaces containing adsorbed atoms or molecules; topics include adsorption, desorption, surface diffusion, thin film behavior, and nanostructures on surfaces. … I like the book because of its clarity and compactness. Each chapter presents a few exercises that will serve well in the classroom. … Surface Science is a good resource for the student who is introduced to the field for the first time."

"The whole book is easy to read and well-structured. The explanations and descriptions are clear and logical. Many examples taken from literature illustrate the content. … the book is a successful attempt to provide a comprehensive introduction into various aspects of surface science. It can be recommended to all readers wishing to get an insight into the experimental background as well as its scientific scope ranging from basic concepts to current research."
