Abstract:

An entirely new foundation for the investigation of interfaces has been laid and partially consolidated via 42 scientific publications plus the support and development of 14 Ph.D. students. By detailed investigation of the five component parts of the excess free energy of an interface, it has been possible to clearly model many complex multi-parameter, multi-variable processes taking place at interfaces. Significant accomplishments relate to new approaches to stress corrosion cracking, surface creation during phase transformations and to a realistic model for crystal-liquid interfaces.
