Paper Abstract

The use of x-ray photoelectron diffraction (XPD) for studies of surface and epitaxial overlayer structures is reviewed. XPD is found to provide several direct and rather unique types of structural information, including the sites and positions of adsorbed atoms, the orientations of small molecules or fragments bonded to surfaces, the layer thicknesses and morphologies of epitaxial or partially epitaxial overlayers, and short-range spin order in magnetic materials. A rather straightforward single scattering model also proves capable of quantitatively describing such data for near-surface species. New directions in such studies also include measurements with high angular resolution and expanded use of synchrotron radiation.
