Starting with an introduction to the basic concepts of electron spectroscopy, the text moves on to explain underlying physical principles, discusses the instrumentation employed and looks at the interpretation of the resulting spectra. The latest material on angle resolved XPS, surface engineering and complimentary methods have been included to provide an up–to–date account of these widely used techniques.
- Examples taken from the fields of metallurgy, corrosion, microelectronics, polymers and adhesion.
- Detailed glossary of key surface analysis terms.
- An invaluable text for undergraduate and postgraduate students studying surface analysis within science and engineering.
- A useful reference to those working within the field and needing to familiarize themselves with these important techniques.
