Section: Chronicle, Bibliographic Data, and Personalia
Original Author's Text:  Ukrainian

Abstract: Some important results obtained by Ukrainian physicists in semiconductor surface science during the independence years (1991–2016) are discussed. The review is mainly focused on the results obtained for nano-dimensional and quantum-size structures and classifies them according to the main scientific directions in the modern Ukrainian semiconductor surface science.

Key words:  semiconductor surface science, physics of real semiconductor surface, physics of metal–semiconductor interface, physics of atomically clean surface, physics of surface-sensitive semiconductor sensors.
