Defects in surface structure: Informations with LEED

Part of the Advances in Solid State Physics book series (ASSP, volume 19)

Abstract

The Low Energy Electron Diffraction (LEED) not only provides quantitative informations on strictly periodic, defect free surfaces. If instead of the integral intensity of the diffraction spots their intensity profile is used, many qualitative and quantitative informations on properties, densities and distribution of defects may be derived with very low computational effort. Especially also irregular distributions may be investigated, which only appear due to special surface treatment in vacuum. Some examples are described including cleaning procedures, epitaxy, oxidation and phase transitions.
