The Relevance and Historical Development of LEED

Chapter
Part of the Springer Series in Surface Sciences book series (SSSUR, volume 6)

Abstract

Of utmost importance in understanding both the physical and the chemical properties of any state of matter is a detailed knowledge of the relative positions of the atoms. This simple fact cannot be overemphasized. The geometric structure is arguably the most fundamental property of the surface of a solid. Even more than this, it is one of the most fundamentally important properties of a solid since the bulk of the solid “communicates” inevitably with its environment via its surface. Furthermore, there is an increasing trend in a myriad of technologically important areas to maximize the ratio of the surface area of a material to its volume.
