Surface Diffusion: Atomistics and Surface Morphology (Summary of MRS Symposium B Panel Discussion)

  • M. H. Grabow (a1), P. J. Feibelman (a2), G. H. Gilmer (a1), B. H. Cooper (a3) and Y. W. Mo (a4)...

This paper gives some of the highlights of a panel discussion on surface diffusion held Monday, November 30, 1992 at the Fall MRS Meeting in Boston, Massachusetts. Four invited speakers discussed computer modeling techniques and scanning tunneling microscopy experiments that have been used to provide new understanding of the atomistic processes that occur at surfaces. We present a summary of each of the invited talks, indicate other presentations on surface diffusion in this proceedings, and provide a transcript of the two discussion sessions.
