Frontiers in Surface and interface Sciences, Special issue of Surface Science, Volume 500 (2002), edited by Charles Duke and Ward Plummer.

This volume is a collection of articles about the future of surface and interface science in the next millennium. Its intent is to express, in simple language, the exciting prospects at the frontiers of surface and interface science at the turn of the millenium. The articles illustrate a future that embraces surface phenomena on scales from the subatomic to the galactic, as well as traditional surface processing, modeling and characterization.
