Thickness of the surface layer of atomic-smooth crystals
Karaganda State University after E.A. Buketov, Karaganda, Republic of Kazakhstan
Abstract. A brief review of the physics of the surface layer of atomically smooth crystals is given. It already contains a fairly large number of practical applications in various fields of interdisciplinary areas. It has been shown that the thickness of the surface layer is determined by one fundamental parameter – the atomic volume of the crystal.
Keywords: surface layer, nanostructure, surface energy, atomic volume, size effect.
