Editorial Reviews


Comments on the previous editions

"A general yet comprehensive introduction to surface and interface science, this book focuses on essential concepts, and includes application from biotechnology to micoelectronics." (Materials World)

"This textbook is really an excellent reference work for advanced students (and their teachers) in material science, chemistry, physics, biology, engineering, or for researchers needing background knowledge in this field. I believe that it should be considered mandatory reading for someone who wants to join this research area. It is very didactic, clear, concise, and well-organized...I really enjoyed reading the book...There are several other books dealing with surface and interface science, but this is probably the best for a general introduction to this subject." (ChemPhysChem)

"... the book is well worth a place on the shelf of material scientists and engineers involved in surface phenomena." (Materials World)

"... an excellent tool that is highly recommendable to students and experts equally." (TU Chemnitz)

"The book is highly recommended as a source of key information or inspiration and as an introduction to a fascinating and multi-facetted field of research and technology." (Advanced Materials)

From the Back Cover

This general yet comprehensive introduction to the field focuses on the essential concepts rather than specific details, on intuitive understanding rather than learning facts. The text reflects the many facets of this discipline by linking fundamentals with applications. The theory behind important concepts is backed by scientific-engineering aspects, as well as by a wide range of high-end applications. Examples of applications from biotechnology to microelectronics are used to illustrate the basic concepts. New to this third edition are topics as second harmonic generation spectroscopy, surface diffusion, atomic layer deposition, superlubricity, and bioadhesion. At the same time, the discussions of liquid surfaces, the Marangoni effect, electric double layers, measurement of surface forces, wetting, and adsorption have been updated. The number and variety of exercises are increased and the references are updated.

The book is fantastic. Covers every subject with proper depth. Account many practical examples, their problems at the end of each chapter are very well prepared. A textbook for surface chemistry.
