Structure and Phase Transitions in Physisorbed Monolayers
We present here an overview of the experimental phase behavior of simple atomic and molecular adsorbates on homogeneous substrates, emphasizing recent investigations using the (001) surface of graphite where in many cases there is close correspondence between the measurements and expected 2-D behavior. Because of space limitations only a partial view of the subject is presented; in particular, the beautiful thermodynamic studies of adsorbed He done by Dash, Bretz, Vilches and others are not covered. Illustrative examples have been chosen to a large extent from the authors’ own work, not because of any exaggerated sense of their relative importance and/or interest, but merely because the necessary figures were already in hand !
