Owing to the increased availability of synchrotron sources,
surface X-ray scattering is a rapidly expanding technique
with important applications to surface structures and
surface phase transitions, roughening of surfaces and
interfaces, and the structure of liquid surfaces, including
polymers, liquid crystals, and organic films. Surface
studies with neutrons, on the other hand provide important
information on liquid andmagnetic films. The contributions
to this volume, written by active researchers in the field,
provide an up-to-date overview of the highly sophisticated
techniques and their applications.
