Synopses & Reviews
The series Chemistry and Physics of Solid Surfaces presents selected review articles predominantly from the area of gas/solid interfaces. These articles are written by internationally recognized experts, the invited speakers of the International Summer Institute in Surface Science (ISISS). Volume VIII covers the following topics: Surface reactivity - activation and desorption of molecules; desorption induced by electronic transitions; intra-adsorbate bond breaking, and the effect of high electric fields; metal clusters and atoms in zeolites; chaos in surface dynamics; surface characterization by STM (theory and application), LEEM, PAX, TOF-SARCH, SEMN with polarization analysis, and by low energy positron diffraction. The purpose of this series is to bring researchers in academia and industry up to date and to bridge the gap between conventional surface science textbooks and specialized conference proceedings. Extensive literature references are provided together with a detailed subject index.
This volume contains review articles written by the invited speakers at the ninth International Summer Institute in Surface Science (ISISS 1989), held at the Uni- versity of Wisconsin-Milwaukee in August of 1989. During the course of ISISS, invited speakers, all internationally recognized experts in the various fields of surface science, present tutorial review lectures. In addition, these experts are asked to write review articles on their lecture topic. Former ISISS speakers serve as advisors concerning the selection of speakers and lecture topics. Emphasis is given to those areas which have not been covered in depth by recent Summer Institutes, as well as to areas which have recently gained in significance and in which important progress has been made. Because of space limitations, no individual volume of Chemistry and Physics of Solid Surfaces can possibly cover the whole area of modern surface science, or even give a complete survey of recent progress in this field. However, an attempt is made to present a balanced overview in the series as a whole. With its comprehensive literature references and extensive subject indices, this series has become a valuable resource for experts and students alike. The collected articles, which stress particularly the gas-solid interface, have been published under the following titles: Surface Science: Recent Progress and Perspectives, Crit. Rev. Solid State Sci.
The Series Chemistry and Physics of Solid Surfaces presents selected review articles predominantly from the area of gas/solid interfaces. It bridges the gap between conventional textbooks on surface science and the highly specialized research literature. Each volume contains extensive literature references and a detailed subject index.
