Foreword from NASF for Advanced Surface Technology

Over the centuries, many forms of surface finishing have been developed and employed industrially by various means to enhance the value of surfaces in commerce. Surface deposition and modification processes have been essential in our modern world—for decoration, for corrosion resistance, for physical property enhancements and indeed for fabricating sophisticated and complex devices and articles in full.
