Preliminary results for the atomic geometry of the (110) surface of ZnS are reported. The surface structure is determined by comparing dynamical calculations of elastic low-energy electron diffraction (ELEED) intensities with those measured at T equals 300 K using a pulsed floodgun technique to suppress the charging of the insulating ZnS sample. In contrast to other tetrahedrally-coordinated, zincblende-structure compound semiconductors for which the (110) surfaces are known to be reconstructed, i. e. , GaAs, InSb, InP, and ZnTe, the measured ELEED intensities from ZnS(110) are described by calculations based on the truncated bulk atomic geometry and minor variants.
