Here is the listing of Best reference books on Surface Science and Engineering.
|1. “Surface Physics” by M. Prutton
Book Review: This book provides a very good introduction to solid surfaces study. The book also demonstrates many techniques that are used to collect data about composition of chemicals, crystallography, atomic layer properties of solid along with solid surfaces theory. The book also contains many case studies and also stresses on silicon crystal surface study thereby demonstrating the application of related techniques to electronic, vibrational and adsorption surface properties. This book is very useful for physics courses at the graduate and undergraduate levels.
|2. “Physical Chemistry of Surfaces” by A.W. Adamson
Book Review: This book fills the gap between wet and dry surface chemistry thereby demonstrating physical surface chemistry. The book presents film treatment at the liquid air and liquid solid interfaces along with basic techniques and macromolecular films. The book also discusses tunneling techniques and atomic force scanning microscopes. The book also covers heterogeneous catalysis with the help of CO case study on metals. The book also focuses on flexible surface and surface restructuring when adsorption occurs. The book also contains a separate chapter on macromolecular films. This book is useful for professional chemists who deal with surface chemistry.
|3. “Surface Engineering for Wear Resistance” by K.G. Budinski
Book Review: This book is suitable for practising professionals, scientists and students studying graduate courses. The book demonstrates microstructural elements and physical properties of materials like metals, polymers, ceramics and composites. The book also explains the relationship between microstructures and physical properties of materials along with contact surfaces and wear processes classification. The book also contains chapters on grooving wear, sliding wear, rolling-sliding wear, erosive wear and many more. The book makes use of sketches for clarifying physical events.
|4. “Microstructure and Wear of materials” by K.H. Zum Gahr|
