Semiconductor Surfaces and Interfaces deals with structural and electronic properties of semiconductor surfaces and interfaces. The first part introduces the general aspects of space-charge layers, of clean-surface and adatom-induced surfaces states, and of interface states. It is followed by a presentation of experimental results on clean and adatom-covered surfaces which are explained in terms of simple physical and chemical concepts. Where available, results of more refined calculations are considered. This third edition has been thoroughly revised and updated. In particular it now includes an extensive discussion of the band lineup at semiconductor interfaces. The unifying concept is the continuum of interface-induced gap states.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews of the third edition:"The monograph covers comprehensively experimental and theoretical methods to study semiconductor surfaces and interfaces. These research topics include aspects of physics, chemistry as well as of electronic devices, and are a very rapidly developing scientific area. The book includes more than 1500 references and is divided into nineteen chapters. The book is the third revised edition . ." (I. A. Parinov, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 994 (19), 2002)
