Any notion that surface science is all about semiconductors and coatings is laid to rest by this encyclopedic publication: Bioengineered interfaces in medicine, interstellar dust, DNA computation, conducting polymers, the surfaces of atomic nuclei - all are brought up to date. Frontiers in Surface and Interface Science - a milestone publication deserving a wide readership. It combines a sweeping expert survey of research today with an educated look into the future. It is a future that embraces surface phenomena on scales from the subatomic to the galactic, as well as traditional topics like semiconductor design, catalysis, and surface processing, modeling and characterization. And, great efforts have been made to express sophisticated ideas in an attractive and accessible way. Nanotechnology, surfaces for DNA computation, polymer-based electronics, soft surfaces, interstellar surface chemistry - all feature in this comprehensive collection.The story of the development of the xerographic copier/printer industry as a case history in value of basic research in US ... In 1998 the dry ink market alone was over $8 B growing at 10% per year, and shared by over 12 multi-national firms, with the largest shares being held by Xerox and Canon. One of the important replacement parts is the photorecep- tor, the worldwide market for which in 1998 wasanbsp;...
