Surfaces (Physics)

Most popular at the top

  • Nanoscale Characterization of Surfaces and Interfacesby N. John DiNardo

    Wiley 2008; US$ 141.00

    Derived from the highly acclaimed series Materials Science and Technology, this book provides in-depth coverage of STM, AFM, and related non-contact nanoscale probes along with detailed applications, such as the manipulation of atoms and clusters on a nanometer scale. The methods are described in terms of the physics and the technology of the methods... more...

  • Free Surface Flows under Compensated Gravity Conditionsby Michael E. Dreyer

    Springer 2007; US$ 229.00

    This book considers the behavior of fluids in a low-gravity environment with special emphasis on application in PMD (propellant management device) systems. In the compensated gravity environment of a spacecraft, the hydrostatic pressure decreases to very low values depending on the residual acceleration, and surface tension forces become dominant.... more...

  • Modern Techniques of Surface Scienceby D. P. Woodruff; T. A. Delchar

    Cambridge University Press 1994; US$ 120.00

    Revised and expanded second edition of the standard work on new techniques for studying solid surfaces. more...

  • Surface Modes in Physicsby Bo E. Sernelius

    Wiley 2011; US$ 200.00

    Electromagnetic surface modes are present at all surfaces and interfaces between material of different dielectric properties. These modes have very important effects on numerous physical quantities: adhesion, capillary force, step formation and crystal growth, the Casimir effect etc. They cause surface tension and wetting and they give rise to forces... more...

  • The Molecule-Metal Interfaceby Norbert Koch; Nobuo Ueno; Andrew Thye Shen Wee

    Wiley 2013; US$ 140.00

    Reviewing recent progress in the fundamental understanding of the molecule-metal interface, this useful addition to the literature focuses on experimental studies and introduces the latest analytical techniques as applied to this interface. The first part covers basic theory and initial principle studies, while the second part introduces readers to... more...

  • Many ? Body Phenomena At Surfacesby David Lengreth

    Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 72.95

    Many-Body Phenomena at Surfaces contains the proceedings of a two-week 1983 Workshop on Many-Body Phenomena at Surfaces sponsored by the Institute for Theoretical Physics, University of California, Santa Barbara. This workshop covers the many-body phenomena and the many-particle aspects of structural phenomena. This text is organized into six parts... more...

  • Nonlinear Surface Electromagnetic Phenomenaby H.-E. Ponath; G.I. Stegeman

    Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 72.95

    In recent years the physics of electromagnetic surface phenomena has developed rapidly, evolving into technologies for communications and industry, such as fiber and integrated optics. The variety of phenomena based on electromagnetism at surfaces is rich and this book was written with the aim of summarizing the available knowledge in selected areas... more...

  • Surface Physicsby Marina V. Mamonova; Vladimir V. Prudnikov; Irina A. Prudnikova

    CRC Press 2013; US$ 145.95

    The demands of production, such as thin films in microelectronics, rely on consideration of factors influencing the interaction of dissimilar materials that make contact with their surfaces. Bond formation between surface layers of dissimilar condensed solids?termed adhesion?depends on the nature of the contacting bodies. Thus, it is necessary to... more...

  • Surfaces and Interfaces: Physics and Electronicsby R.S. Bauer

    Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 72.95

    Surfaces and Interfaces: Physics and Electronics covers the proceedings of the second Trieste ICTP-IUPAP Semiconductor Symposium, conducted at the International Center for Theoretical Physics in Trieste, Italy on August 30 to September 3, 1982. The book focuses on the processes, methodologies, reactions, and approaches involved in semiconductor physics.... more...

  • Materials that Change Colorby Marinella Ferrara; Murat Bengisu

    Springer International Publishing 2013; US$ 54.99

    This book presents a design-driven investigation into smart materials developed by chemists, physicists, materials and chemical engineers, and applied by designers to consumer products. Introducing a class of smart materials, that change colors, the book presents their characteristics, advantages, potentialities and difficulties of applications of... more...
