Interface physics has long been a major focus of condensed matter physics.
Historically, many studies analyzed the electronic and structural properties of the interfaces. More recently, however, the focus shifted towards investigations of the spin-dependent phenomena near surfaces and in small scale structures. This is due, at least in part, to the promise of spintronics, development of functional devices based on the transport of spin, rather than charge.
