Glossary of surface technology


An electron is a low-mass elementary particle. It is the carrier of the negative electric charge and the carrier of the electric current in metals. The atomic shell consists of electrons.<br/>In the plasma, there are always free electrons separated from the atomic or molecular compound of the plasma gas. High electrical conductivity of metals is based on a part of freely moving electrons. This is the basis of electrical engineering as well as electronics.
