About this book

This book presents the state of the art in nanoscale surface physics. It outlines contemporary trends in the field covering a wide range of topical areas: atomic structure of surfaces and interfaces, molecular films and polymer adsorption, biologically inspired nanophysics, surface design and pattern formation, and computer modeling of interfacial phenomena. Bridging "classical" and "nano" concepts, the present volume brings attention to the physical background of exotic condensed-matter properties. The book is devoted to Iwan Stranski and Rostislaw Kaischew, remarkable scientists, who played a crucial role in setting up the theoretical fundamentals of nucleation and crystal growth phenomena in the last century.

About the authors

Dr. Michail Michailov: Associate Professor at Institute of Physical Chemistry, Bulgarian Academy of Sciences, Sofia. Invited researcher at Institute of Solid State Physics, University of Hannover and at French National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS) – Nancy, Marseille and Paris; Invited lecturer at Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL), University of Lausanne; Expert in the field of two-dimensional phase transitions and atomic structure of surfaces and interfaces. Author of experimental and theoretical studies in nanoscale surface physics including properties of epitaxial interfaces, order-disorder phenomena in atomic monolayers, diffusion of clusters and surface-confined intermixing phenomena. Initiator of STRANSKI-KAISCHEW workshops series in Surface Science held since 1994.
