    Abstract

    In recent decades, ion scattering has been developed as a powerful tool for measuring the composition of the outermost layer of liquid surfaces, concentration depth profiles and breakdown of the ordered structure of solids. Properties of solvents, solutes, and solutions could be determined where hardly any other analytical tool could have been used as an alternative. The challenge for the future is to be able to routinely investigate aqueous surfaces and biological systems with ion scattering spectroscopy, thus making the advantage of the ion scattering techniques available for research in these fields. All tools have been developed for such investigations and the methods are ready to meet this challenge.
