Description

Foundations of Surface Science provides a review of the most up-to-date developments of surface science by exploring contemporary theories, key concepts, and a number of pioneering techniques that have recently been developed.

  • Arranged thematically, with chapters covering thermodynamics; symmetry and structure; electronic structure; and the kinetics and dynamics of surfaces
  • A final chapter covers key experimental techniques, including some suited to ambient or wet conditions, providing a unified overview both of classic methods and of recent advancements in the field
  • Includes an extended discussion of the growing role played by first-principles density functional theory in contemporary surface science research, as an integral part of the techniques chapter
  • Questions at the end of each chapter focus attention on important or difficult concepts that may require deeper thought
  • Frequent diagrams, clear illustrative figures and schematics, margin notes, and glossary definitions support students in their learning
  • All titles in the series are available in print and also as ebooks with functionality, navigation features, and links that offer extra learning support

About the Author(s)

Stephen J. Jenkins, Professor of Physical & Computational Surface Chemistry, University of Cambridge

Stephen J. Jenkins is Professor of Physical & Computational Surface Chemistry at the Yusuf Hamied Department of Chemistry, University of Cambridge, where he conducts research into the physical and chemical properties of surfaces. He has worked in this field for thirty years, publishing over 150 papers on a variety of topics ranging from the dynamics of molecular adsorption, through the symmetry and asymmetry of adsorbed overlayers, to the origin of spin-polarised surface-localised electronic states. Over the past two decades, he has lectured and developed undergraduate courses both on general surface science and on the electronic structure of solid surfaces.
