Atomic and Electronic Structure of Solid Surfaces

Abdu S.G., Babaji G.

Abstract


The atomic and electronic structure of solid surfaces is reviewed. Only clean and flat surfaces are considered. The main features of the surface unit cell are highlighted.  The nature and types of surface reconstructions are treated. The energy structure and energetics of surfaces are also treated. An important semiconductor surface, i.e. silicon surface is discussed in the light of it’s atomic structure and energetics.
