Abstract : Fundamental studies of microscopic parameters relating to the binding and reaction of single atoms and of monolayers of molecules and atoms on clean surfaces of single crystal surfaces of tungsten and of nickel have been completed. These measurements involve field electron emission, LEED intensity analysis, work function measurements and Auger electron analysis. The results make substantial contributions to the microscopic theory of chemical binding on metal surfaces and to the surface atomic crystallography of both clean and chemisorbed surfaces. (Author)
