This book is an introduction to the application of computer simulation and theory in the study of the interaction of energetic particles (1 ev to the MeV range) with solid surfaces. The authors describe methods that are applicable both to hard collisions between nuclear cores of atoms down to soft interactions, where chemical effects or long-range forces dominate. The range of potential applications of the technique is enormous. In surface science, applications include surface atomic structure determination using ion scattering spectroscopy or element analysis using SIMS or other techniques that involve depth profiling. Industrial applications include optical or hard coating deposition, ion implantation in semiconductor device manufacture or nanotechnology. The techniques described will facilitate studying plasma-sidewall interaction in fusion devices. This book will be of interest to graduate students and researchers, both academic and industrial, in surface science, semiconductor engineering, thin-film deposition and particleSHsurface interactions in departments of physics, chemistry and electrical engineering.

This book deals with physical and computational modelling techniques in surface and materials science. Although it is an introduction to these techniques, it contains many comparisons with experimental data. It is the only book that introduces all the mathematical and computational techniques in common use and with direct comparisons with experiment. The main aim of the book is as a basic introduction to the field to make scientists and engineers aware of the simulation technique as a new tool, complementary to both theory and experiment.Review:
"...an admirable job of identifying the key material in ways that will be useful and interesting to novices as well as experienced professionals." American Scientist
