" The formation of rapidly responding materials for altering electronic input signals would have important consequences for fundamental science as well as for imaging systems. The characteristics of an electronic shift-register memory at the molecular level have been described in a recent and provocative paper.

" Advances in surface science methodology now allow for examination of surfaces at the atomic leveL Investigations of processes involving adsorption, electrodeposition, and corrosion of electrodes have been affected by these advances.
