Experimental Studies of Atomic Behavior at Crystal Surfaces

  • Gert Ehrlich

Abstract

Possibly the simplest surface problems are those dealing with the behavior of elemental solids. Such important phenomena as crystal and thin-film growth, evaporation, surface diffusion, and sintering all involve atomic events at the solid-vacuum interface. However, the state of understanding of even these simple problems mirrors that in more complex areas of technological interest: although at present measurements are available on the overall event, only little has been done to establish the atomic mechanisms directly.
