Item description for Solid Surfaces, Interfaces and Thin Films by Hans Lüth...
This book emphasises both experimental and theoretical aspects of surface, interface and thin film physics. Compa- red to the earlier editions, which bore the title "Surfaces and Interfaces of Solid Materials", the book now places more emphasis on thin films, including also their superconducting and ferromagnetic properties. The present 4th edition thus presents techniques of preparing well-defined solid surfaces and interfaces, fundamental aspects of adsorption and layer growth, as well as basic models for the descripti- on of structural, vibronic and electronic properties of sur- faces, interfaces and thin films. Because of their importan- ce for modern information technology, significant attention is paid to the electronic properties of semiconductor inter- faces and heterostructures. Collective phenomena , such as superconductivity and ferromagnetism, also feature promi- nently. Experimental sections covering essential measurement and preparation techniques are presented in separate panels.

An Excellent Source on Surface Science... Apr 27, 2003
This book is an excellent reference on surface science in general. It is very suitable and useful for graduate students of physics, chemistry, materials science and electrical engineering. The book presents the theory very well, with illustrative examples, and it also contains experimental techniques with real examples. I have examined at least 10-12 surface science books. This is by far the best one!
Great Book for a Beginer.. Apr 1, 2000
Most of the people studying surface-interface properties, soon begin to concentrate on their topic of interest and forget the proverb "see around". This book provides a nice journey into the basics of surface study. Weather u are a experimentalist looking into the details of electron diffraction or a theoretist interested in electronic structure, this book is for you. To quote author, "need no changes in the structure of the book", even after many years of previous edition. I too did not find any specific lacuana in the book, which well justifies its space in the ravks of all surface scientists.
