Lecture notes on Surfaces and Thin Films

© Arizona Board of Regents for Arizona State University and John A. Venables


These lecture notes by John A. Venables, originated in conjunction with lectures given at ASU in Spring 1996, and at EPFL (Lausanne, Switzerland) in Fall 1997, and have been reused, and in many cases updated, since then. They have been developed into a graduate teaching text Introduction to Surface and Thin Film Processes (Cambridge University Press, 2000), which can be ordered now! This text is open to the web, in the sense that it has been updated from these pages, and can incorporate your comments, questions and student projects. Some additional linked material is given in the Sussex QMMS course, which was initially presented in Fall 1999 and was given most recently in 2005-06.
