Elements of X-Ray Diffraction, B.D. Cullity. Addison-Wesley, 2nd ed., 1978. ISBN# 0201011743

Molecular Beam Epitaxy (MBE):

What is MBE - Stands for molecular beam epitaxy. It is a technique used to grow atomic layers of one material on top of another. This technique is used in industry to produce optoelectronic and high speed devices (i.e.,
lasers, diodes and transistors).

Molecular Beam Epitaxy, M.A. Herman and H. Sitter. Springer, 2nd ed., 1996. ISBN# 3540605940

Materials Fundamentals of Molecular Beam Epitaxy, Jeffrey Tsao. Academic Press, 1993. ISBN# 0127016252

Scanning Tunneling Microscopy (STM):

What is STM - Stands for Scanning Tunneling Microscopy. With STM one can take images of a surface with atomic scale resolution.

Scanning Probe Microscopy and Spectroscopy, Roland Weisendanger. Cambridge Press, 1994. ISBN# 0521428475

Scanning Tunneling Microscopy, Joseph Stroscio and William Kaiser. Academic Press, 1993. ISBN# 012674050X

Science Writing:

The Craft of Scientific Writing, Michael Alley. Prentice-Hall, 3rd ed., 1996. ISBN# 0387947
