In eight volumes, this unique handbook covers all fundamental aspects of surface and interface science and offers a comprehensive overview of this research area for scientists working in the field, as well as an introduction for newcomers.

Volume 1 presents a detailed description of the most important theoretical and experimental tools of surface science. Our present knowledge about the specific physics and chemistry of surfaces and interfaces is described in the following volumes in the order of increasing complexity.

Volume 1: Concepts and Methods

Volume 2: Properties of Elemental Surfaces

Volume 3: Properties of Composite Surfaces: Alloys, Compounds, Semiconductors

Volume 4: Solid–Solid Interfaces and Thin Films

Volume 5: Solid–Gas Interfaces I

Volume 6: Solid–Gas Interfaces II

Volume 7: Solid–Liquid and Biological Interfaces

Volume 8: Applications of Surface Science

In this volume:

  • Introduction: An Intuitive Approach to Surface and Interface Science

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."
