Surface Science is devoted to elucidating the fundamental aspects of chemistry and physics occurring at a wide range of surfaces and interfaces and to disseminating this knowledge fast. The journal welcomes a broad spectrum of topics, including but not limited to:
/// model systems (e.g. in Ultra High Vacuum) under well-controlled reactive conditions
/// nanoscale science and engineering, including manipulation of matter at the atomic/molecular scale and assembly phenomena
/// reactivity of surfaces as related to various applied areas including heterogeneous catalysis, chemistry at electrified interfaces, and semiconductors functionalization
/// phenomena at interfaces relevant to energy storage and conversion, and fuels production and utilization
/// surface reactivity for environmental protection and pollution remediation
/// interactions at surfaces of soft matter, including polymers and biomaterials.
Both experimental and theoretical work, including modeling, is within the scope of the journal. Work published in Surface Science reaches a wide readership, from chemistry and physics to biology and materials science and engineering, providing an excellent forum for cross-fertilization of ideas and broad dissemination of scientific discoveries.
