Description

This guide to the use of surface analysis techniques, now in its second edition, has expanded to include more techniques, current applications and updated references. It outlines the application of surface analysis techniques to a broad range of studies in materials science and engineering. The book consists of three parts: an extensive introduction to the concepts of surface structure and composition, a techniques section describing 19 techniques and a section on applications. This book is aimed at industrial scientists and engineers in research and development. The level and content of this book make it ideal as a course text for senior undergraduate and postgraduate students in materials science, materials engineering, physics, chemistry and metallurgy.

Review Text

I teach graduate courses on Surface Analysis and on Surface Science (with a strong component of Surface Analysis). I was so impressed with the first edition of this book that I intended to adopt it for my class but, unfortunately, it was soon out-of-print. I encouraged John O'Connor to prepare another edition of this jewel that I could use in the future. What distinguishes this book from others is the very unusual breadth. It covers fundamentals, practical issues of analyses, and concrete applications to the analysis of metals, semiconductors, polymers, and ceramics (including minerals).

Quote from Prof. Raul Baragiola, University of Virginia

From the reviews of the second edition:

"More than 30 experts have contributed to this book providing a wealth of expertise based on theoretical as well as practical background. ... the book can be recommended not only to university students but also to scientists and engineers working in industry. It will help to find the appropriate method, or better the combination of methods, which will be needed to solve problems in process control and failure analysis." (W. Oesterle, Werkstoffe und Korrosion/Materials and Corrosion, Vol. 55 (3), 2004)
