Abstract : Research is summarized whose purpose was to examine in a fundamental manner various phenomena occurring at interfaces between different materials, including the gas-solid interface, and their influence on the behavior of materials in engineering applications. The research program included fundamental surface science, e.g., adsorption and surface thermodynamics; the development of surface analytical techniques, e.g., Auger electron spectroscopy and micromechanical techniques; applications, e.g., friction and wear, and semiconductor process studies; and fabrication methods, e.g., chemical vapor deposition and sintering.
