This is the second volume of an advanced handbook on experimental molecular beam methods, in which seventeen specialists cover the areas of molecular beam spectroscopy and surface scattering. It is designed to be used both as a reference book in the laboratory and as a supplementary text for graduate courses in spectroscopy and gas-surface interactions. The text is split into two parts dealing with these two topics. The spectroscopy part introduces the special features connected with using beams in spectroscopy and then goes on to discuss the subject, going through the spectrum from low to high frequencies. The surface scattering part introduces general instrumentation problems, followed by a series of chapters in which elastic, rotationally inelastic, single-phonon, multi-phonon and chemical scattering are discussed. Scattering from non-ordered surfaces is covered separately. The emphasis throughout is on experimental methods, which includes discussions on data analysis and calibrations. Numerous examples of data are shown and to allow for the understanding of these the theory underlying the most common measurements is also more

Review quote

"Scoles and his colleagues have successfully filled a longtime void in the scientific literature by providing a comprehensive treatise. Each chapter provides concise yet thorough descriptions of relevant and successful beam techniques. . . . well organized sections . . . cross references are abundant and helpful. . . . nicely indexed. . . . both volumes should be on the shelf of any serious researcher or student." --Optics and Photonics Newsshow more
