Surface Science and Engineering

The study of physical and chemical process that rises by incorporation of two phases, with solid–liquid/ solid–gas/ solid–vacuum/ liquid–gas interfaces is named as Surface Science. The actual application of surface science in related arenas like chemistry, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering and physics is recognized as Surface Engineering. Surface Chemistry achieves the alteration of chemical configuration of a surface by presenting functional groups and additional elements while Surface physics deals with the physical deviations that arise at interfaces. Techniques tangled in Surface engineering are spectroscopy methods such as X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, low-energy electron diffraction, electron energy loss spectroscopy, Auger electron spectroscopy, Thermal desorption spectroscopy, ion scattering spectroscopy and secondary ion mass spectrometry, etc. The chemical reactions at the interface is generally termed as Surface Chemistry and is also linked to surface engineering. It is very significant in the arenas of heterogenous catalysis, electrochemistry and geochemistry.
