Low Energy Ion--Surface Interactions Edited by J. Wayne Rabalais, University of Houston, Texas, USA Recent advances in experimental techniques and theoretical methodologies mean that increasingly detailed and sophisticated studies of state--or energy--selected molecular ions can now be performed. Each volume in this series will be dedicated to reviewing a specific topic, emphasizing new experimental and theoretical developments in the study of ions. This volume details the current understanding of Low Energy Ion--Surface Interactions, along with some of the novel applications. Each of the ten chapters is authored by active researchers in the field who are at the forefront of research in their particular areas. This up-to-date compilation, detailing developments occurring within the last five years, will be particularly useful to researchers and teachers involved with Low Energy Ion--Surface Interactions.
