1004 pages

Select type: O-Book


Covering interface science from a novel surface science perspective, this unique handbook offers a comprehensive overview of this burgeoning field.
Eight topical volumes cover basic concepts & methods, elemental and composite surfaces, solid-gas, solid-liquid and inorganic-biological interfaces, as well as applications of surface science in nanotechnology, materials science and molecular electronics.
With its broad scope and clear structure, it is ideal as a reference for scientists working in the field,
as well as an introduction for newcomers.

Comments on the series' concept
""This looks like an ambitious project that fills a clear need.""
""I believe that it is really important to write a large handbook on surface science, it is really missing.""
""Your project is very attractive indeed, and I believe that it will be welcome to many present and future 'surfacists' and those who apply surface phenomena in technology.""
