## Real space mapping of the surface atomic environment via low energy scattering spectroscopy

### In: Surface Science, 1997, vol. 384, no. 1-3, p. 36-45

Low-energy ion scattering spectroscopy is used to obtain real space surface imaging of the atomic surroundings of different fcc metal surfaces. Scattered He+ ions were mapped over a large solid angle sector. By using an universal shadow cone expression, it is possible to invert the angular maps into two-dimensional real space maps. The inversion procedure is tested on Pt(111), Cu(001)... More
