## low energy electron diffraction (LEED)

https://doi.org/10.1351/goldbook.L03631
Any technique which measures the angular intensity distribution of electrons reflected from a crystalline surface under bombardment with low energy electrons ($$E_{0} < 500\ \text{eV}$$) in larger angles of incidence. The @D01711@ pattern also provides very surface sensitive information on the atomic arrangement of the top layers of a solid.
