In science:

Inside the solid, the potential V eff seen by an electron becomes attractive, due to the electrostatic potential of the ion cores, due to the electrostatic field of the surface-dipole layer, and due to the lowering of the electron energy by the formation of an exchange-correlation hole.
Theory of Adsorption on Metal Substrates
In this case, the interplay between strongly nonlinear interwell charge transport and the large tunable spin splitting induced by exchange interactions with spin-polarized Mn ions produces interesting spin features.
