A Note on the Bloch Wave and Integral Formulations of RHEED Theory

Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 188)


As in the transmission case, the diffraction theory for reflection of high energy electrons, RHEED, can be developed along different lines. The two most common are the Bloch wave treatment and the differential or integral operator approach, the latter can be compared with the multi-slice formulation or the Howie-Whelan equations for transmission.[1] In either case the introduction of the backscattered wave may be seen as a crucial step.
