About this book


This guide to the use of surface analysis techniques, now in its second edition, has expanded to include more techniques, current applications and updated references. It outlines the application of surface analysis techniques to a broad range of studies in materials science and engineering. The book consists of three parts: an extensive introduction to the concepts of surface structure and composition, a techniques section describing 19 techniques and a section on applications. Each chapter has been written by specialists in the field who draw on their experience in current developments and applications. This book is aimed at industrial scientists and engineers in research and development seeking a description of available techniques in a concise but informative style. It is invaluable as a comprehensive text for scientists and engineers attending training courses and workshops. The level and content of this book make it ideal as a course text for senior undergraduate and postgraduate students in materials science, materials engineering, physics, chemistry and metallurgy.
