Ionic crystals are one of the least difficult constructions in nature. they are often simply cleaved in air and in vacuum, and the ensuing surfaces are atomically flat on parts 1000s of nanometers huge. With the advance of scanning probe microscopy, those surfaces became a terrific playground to enquire a number of phenomena taking place at the nanometer scale. This booklet makes a speciality of the elemental reports of atomically resolved imaging, nanopatterning, steel deposition, molecular self-assembling and nanotribological methods happening on ionic crystal surfaces. the following, an important number of constructions are created by way of nanolithography, annealing and irradiation through electrons, ions or photons, and are used to restrict steel debris and natural molecules or to enhance our easy knowing of friction and put on at the atomic scale. steel oxides with broad band hole also are mentioned. Altogether, the implications acquired to date can have an undoubted effect at the destiny improvement of nanoelectronics and nanomechanics.
