Product Description

From the Back Cover

The second edition of this successful textbook provides a clear, well-written introduction to the principal techniques used in surface analysis, together with the computational methods used to interpret the increasingly complex data generated by them. Coverage includes the basic theory and practice of each technique together with practical examples of its sue and application and most chapters include review questions enabling the reader to develop and test their understanding.

Includes the following new material:

  • A completely new chapter on 'Dynamic SIMS'
  • A completely new chapter on 'The Application of Multivariate Data Analysis Techniques in Surface Analysis'
  • All the other chapters have been extensively revised. Many now include illustrative applications and development room the fields of biotechnology and nanotechnology.

Surface Analysis: the Principal Techniques 2nd Edition, will be appropriate for the scientifically literate lay-person and for use in specialist undergraduate courses in materials and analytical sciences. Post-graduate M.Sc. and Ph.D. students involved in surface analysis and research whether concerned with inorganic, organic or biological materials will find it particularly useful. In addition, industrial analytical scientists will find this book an invaluable introduction to bring rapid familiarity with the capabilities of the various techniques.

Thus this book should be of value to those who need to have a wide overview of the techniques in education or in industrial quality control or R&D laboratories. For those who wish to further develop their knowledge and practice or particular techniques, it should also give a good basic understanding from which to build.

HASH(0x9a5aa198) out of 5 stars Great review of Surface Analysis methods April 18 2013
By ScottieW - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a great, quick and dirty review of the principles and theories of many of the modern surface analysis techniques available today. The sections on Auger and ESCA were well written, however, feel the SIMS chapters need to be developed to incorporate the quantitative methods emerging for SIMS.
