Theoretical Studies of Metal Clusters as Models for Surface Phenomena

  • R. P. Messmer
  • D. R. Salahub


With the advent of the great technological advances in ultra-high vacuum technology within the last decade, which has stimulated the development of a variety of new experimental techniques, a re-awakening of interest in the basic understanding of gas-solid interactions has taken place. This in turn has led to an almost explosive growth in the once fledgling discipline of surface science.
