Part of the Springer Series in Chemical Physics book series (CHEMICAL, volume 2)


Here we consider the diffraction of plane waves by an ordered layer of atoms that has one atom per unit cell (i.e., has a Bravais lattice). When more than one atom per unit cell are present, the layer should either be considered as a composite layer (cf. Chaps.6,7) or it should be taken to be several Bravais-lattice layers if their perpendicular separation distances are large (see Sects.3.2,11.1 for the appropriate criteria).
