Multiple scattering theory based on a cluster model is used to simulate full-hemispherical X-ray photoelectron diffraction measurements in order to verify how state of the art multiple scattering simulations are able to reproduce the experiment. This approach is applied to the Cu(1 1 1) surface for two different photoelectron kinetic energies. Differences and similarities between single and...
