About this book

An introduction to the concepts of surface crystallography and surface-structure determination. The book outlines the principles of the most widely used experimental techniques and theoretical simulations, and reviews their application to the surfaces of rare-earth metals. In particular, the results of quantitative low-energy electron-diffraction experiments and multiple-scattering calculations are covered in some depth. The book is aimed at science graduates with an interest in surface crystallography.

The first chapter provides an excellent overview to the rare-earths ... The book is aimed at graduate students with an interest in crystallography, but has minimized the rigorous mathematical treatment favored by physicists. RIC News, Mar 2002
