About this book

This book gives a representative survey of the state of the art of research on gas-surface interactions. It provides an overview of the current understanding of gas surface dynamics and, in particular, of the reactive and non-reactive processes of atoms and small molecules at surfaces. Leading scientists in the field, both from the theoretical and the experimental sides, write in this book about their most recent advances.
Surface science grew as an interdisciplinary research area over the last decades, mostly because of new experimental technologies (ultra-high vacuum, for instance), as well as because of a novel paradigm, the ‘surface science’ approach. The book describes the second transformation which is now taking place pushed by the availability of powerful quantum-mechanical theoretical methods implemented numerically. In the book, experiment and theory progress hand in hand with an unprecedented degree of accuracy and control. The book presents how modern surface science targets the atomic-level understanding of physical and chemical processes at surfaces, with particular emphasis on dynamical aspects. This book is a reference in the field.

Reviews

From the book reviews:

“The volume collects the work carried out by many among the best groups and authors in the field, including the excellent contributions from the editors’ home-institutions, the CONICET-UNR at Rosario, Argentina and, last but not least, the Centro de Física de Materiales of CSIC, and the Donostia International Physics Center (DIPC) of the Basque Country University at San Sebastian. This important book is a must for all surface science laboratories.” (G. Benedek, Il Nuovo Saggiatore, en.sif.it, Vol. 31 (1-2), 2015)
