Previously, the structures of surfaces and interfaces had to be constructed from complex diffraction experiments, but now they can be observed directly from a scanning tunnelling microscope or atomic force microscope. This book reviews progress in the imaging of electrified surfaces, and covers many techniques that have only been introduced during the 1990s. Several chapters explore electrocrystallisation and electrodeposition of metals, a technologically important area that has benefited from the availability of modern surface imaging techniques. Furthermore, each chapter provides sufficient background to be read by nonspecialists.
