Atom-Surface Potential Information from Low-Energy Atom-Surface Scattering
Progress in surface science has been limited by the absence of easily interpreted experiments which specifically probe the surface region. Over the past several years low energy light atom-surface scattering has received increased attention. Experimental data suggests that of the experimental probes developed so far, He scattering is the most sensitive to properties specific to the surface region (first atomic layer only). Consequently, there is a continuing search for new classes of beam experiments which investigate selective features of the surface.
