n the last two decades surface physics has experienced an explosive expansion caused by the development and/or substantial improvement of surface sensitive techniques and UHV appa-ratus. It has grown into a mature field of research, with data of the highest accuracy and repro-ducibility. Surface physics is of great importance for technological applications like control of the work function of semiconductors,interface physics,field effect devices, molecular beam epitaxy, chemisorption and catalysis, corrosion, surface hardening etc.. The present volume is restricted to the so-called "clean" surfaces, i.e. to surfaces atomically clean and well characterized,leaving the more complex field of the contaminated surfaces and overlayers to a later occasion.
