Surface Physics of Materials: Volume II provides an account of the physical properties of solid surfaces. It examines the status of work on a number of aspects of solid surfaces and predicts the most profitable avenues for future research.
The book contains a set of papers carefully selected to give broad coverage of the field of surface physics. The individual chapters deal with topics of current research interest and emphasize surface properties rather than the applicability of experimental techniques. This volume focuses on the transport of matter and interaction between surfaces through adhesion and friction. It provides a chemical analysis of surfaces and surface vibrations.
This volume caters to research workers, teachers, and graduate students in surface physics and serves as reference texts for the materials scientist specializing in other branches of the subject.
