Abstract : Modern experimental techniques, particularly flash desorption, field emission, and field ion microscopy, coupled with advances in ultrahigh vacuum technology, have made it possible to attain a detailed description of adsorption phenomena from routine measurements. Recent advances in the understanding of elementary atomic processes at the gas-solid interface, gained by these methods, are reviewed with particular emphasis on two topics: (1) the relation between surface structure and atom binding in physical adsorption as well as the chemisorption; (2) the kinetics of atomic condensation and equilibration.
