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.

Contents

Introduction to the Rare Earths; The Basics of Surface Structure; Surface Structure Techniques; Crystal Growth and Surface Preparation; Rare-Earth Surface Science; Quantitative Low-Energy Electron Diffraction; Quantitative LEED Results; Summary - Past, Present and Future.

Media reviews
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
