This general yet comprehensive introduction to the field focuses on the essential concepts rather than specific details, on intuitive understanding rather than learning facts. The text reflects the many facets of this discipline by linking fundamentals with applications. The theory behind important concepts is backed by scientific–engineering aspects, as well as by a wide range of high–end applications. Examples of applications from biotechnology to microelectronics are used to illustrate the basic concepts. New to this third edition are topics as second harmonic generation spectroscopy, surface diffusion, atomic layer deposition, superlubricity, and bioadhesion. At the same time, the discussions of liquid surfaces, the Marangoni effect, electric double layers, measurement of surface forces, wetting, and adsorption have been updated. The number and variety of exercises are increased and the references are updated.
