8.1 Introduction

Modern technology of metals and alloys often requires precise and repeatable control of surface properties such as cleanliness. Finishing, coating, adhesion, corrosion and appearance are a few of the concerns requiring knowledge of surface cleanliness. The chemical composition of the surface layer on a metal or alloy is different from that of the bulk, and this surface layer can effect the physical, chemical, metallurgical, and mechanical properties of the surface.1 This chapter is concerned ...
