This book covers linear and nonlinear optics as well as optical spectroscopy at solid surfaces and at interfaces between a sold and a liquid or gas. In the first part, the author gives a concise introduction to the physics of surfaces and interfaces. They discuss in detail physical properties of solid surfaces and of their interfaces to liquid and gases. The necessary theoretical background for understanding various optical techniques is provided thereafter.

The second part of the book gives a broad review on optical techniques and their applications such as infrared and optical spectroscopy or optical microscopy. Discussions of nonlinear optics, but also nano–optics and local spectroscopies complement this self–contained work. Helpful features includes problems with solutions, a glossary, an index and a thoroughly elaborated list of topical references.

The book is suited as a text of graduate students but also for scientists working in physics, chemistry, materials or life sciences who look for an expert introduction to surface optical aspects of their studies.
