Abstract : In this review, we will examine the possibility of utilizing energetic ion beams as tools to characterize the chemistry and structure of solids and surfaces. This approach may appear somewhat unusual to most spectroscopists who are generally concerned with the quantum mechanical interaction of electromagnetic radiation with matter. But, there have been a number of developments that have surfaced over the last few years which have attracted our attention to this particular field and which merit close consideration. (Author)
