Description

Providing students as well as engineers and researchers with a must-have insight into the complexities of surface structure and behavior, this monograph extends beyond the usual introductory books, presenting concentrated knowledge on the surface science of metals, and connecting fundamentals with actual applications. Beginning with explanations of the intricacies of surfaces and their differences to bulk, it takes the reader through the vital steps towards macroscopic metallic components as well as surface nanostructuring. In so doing, it makes use of theory, experimental techniques, examples, and modeling to facilitate a firm understanding.
