Successful structure determination entailed the development of adjustable parameter free self-consistent phase shifts, which provide a more reliable description of the electron scattering than traditional approaches. Additionally, the impact of soft surface vibrational modes on the structure determination has been investigated. It was found that the soft surface mode identified in this study has no significant bearing on the interpretation of the LEED-IV data, in contrast to suggestions in the literature.

Former postdoc Dr. This anticipated annual list identifies researchers who demonstrated significant influence in their chosen field or fields through the publication of multiple highly cited papers during the last decade. Congratulations, Junfa!! The Morton M. They are based on his discovery of a fundamental equation that equates the apparent activation energy in reaction mechanisms to a weighted average of the enthalpies of the rate-controlling transition states and intermediates, where the weighting factor is the degree of rate control for each species.
Low-energy electron diffraction LEED is a technique for the determination of the surface structure of single-crystalline materials by bombardment with a collimated beam of low energy electrons 20— eV  and observation of diffracted electrons as spots on a fluorescent screen. An electron diffraction experiment similar to modern LEED was the first to observe the wavelike properties of electrons, but LEED was established as an ubiquitous tool in surface science only with the advances in vacuum generation and electron detection techniques. The theoretical possibility of the occurrence of electron diffraction first emerged in when Louis de Broglie introduced wave mechanics and proposed the wavelike nature of all particles. The de Broglie hypothesis was confirmed experimentally at Bell Labs in when Clinton Davisson and Lester Germer fired low-energy electrons at a crystalline nickel target and observed that the angular dependence of the intensity of backscattered electrons showed diffraction patterns. These observations were consistent with the diffraction theory for X-rays developed by Bragg and Laue earlier. Before the acceptance of the de Broglie hypothesis diffraction was believed to be an exclusive property of waves.

Plasma processing technologies are of vital importance to several of the largest manufacturing industries in the world. Foremost among these industries is the electronics industry, in which plasma-based processes are indispensable for the manufacture of very large-scale integrated microelectronic circuits. Plasma processing of materials is also a critical technology in, for example, the aerospace, automotive, steel, biomedical, and toxic waste management industries Figure 2. Most recently, plasma processing technology has been utilized increasingly in the emerging technologies of diamond film and superconducting film growth.
A "LEEM low energy electron microscope " is an instrument to obtain a surface image of a specimen. The incident electron energy is reduced to several V to several 10 V, and elastically-backscattered electrons from a specimen are accelerated by an electric field just above the specimen.
It seems that you're in Germany. We have a dedicated site for Germany. Numerous illustrations illuminate the fundamental aspects of the electron optics, the experimental setup, and particularly the application results with these instruments. Surface Microscopy with Low Energy Electrons will give the reader a unified picture of the imaging, diffraction, and spectroscopy methods that are possible using low energy electron microscopes. Professor Ernst Bauer is a distinguished German-American physicist and surface scientist who has made fundamental contributions to the understanding of epitaxial growth and to the development of microscopy techniques. He is one of the founders of surface physics and the physics of thin films. In he derived the classification of the thin film growth mechanisms that provides the theoretical framework of epitaxy which is used worldwide to this day.
