Item description for Surface Science: An Introduction (Advanced Texts in Physics) by K. Oura, V. G. Lifshits, A. A. Saranin, A. V. Zorov, M. Katayama, K. Oura & V. G. Lifshits...
Designed as a textbook for advanced undergraduate and graduate students in engineering and physical sciences who are seeking a general overview of surface science,this bookalso provides the necessary background for researchers just starting out in the field.It covers all the most important aspects of modern surface science, from the experimental background and crystallographic basics to modern analytical techniques and applications to thin films and nanostructures. All topics are presented in a concise and clear form accessible to a beginner. At the same time, the coverage is comprehensive and at a high technical level, with emphasis on the fundamental physical principles. Numerous examples, references, practice exercises, and problems complement this remarkably complete treatment, which will also serve as an excellent reference for researchers and practitioners.

Reviews - What do customers think about Surface Science: An Introduction (Advanced Texts in Physics)?
A "new" book on surface science. May 19, 2006
This book was written by five participating authors. It is not better than Hans Lüth's book, "Solid surfaces, Interfaces and Thin Films", but maybe of comparable quality. However, the authors did a fairly good job in general.
The advantage of this book is that it is written a few years ago and contains a lot of information regarding the developments, innovations and new techniques of surface science. The schemes and charts are well-drawn and well-presented. The photographs of some instruments and experimental results are especially useful and make this book better in some sense. The image qualities and resolutions are very fine.
There is a good balance between theoretical and experimental discussions. The references are very beneficial for detailed studies. In general, it is a very well-written book, something you expect form Springer Verlag.
