Originally published in 1985, this book provides a comprehensive and up-to-date treatment of solid state electron tunneling phenomena, with emphasis on their application in probing the electronic and vibrational properties of superconductors, normal metals, semiconductors, and thin insulating barrier layers. The quantum-mechanical foundations of the subject are traced, and the most active areas of tunneling research are covered in a uniform and coherent manner. A thorough treatment of experimental techniques in tunneling research is provided, along with an introduction to the relevant techniques of data analysis.
