Abstract

The low-energy electron diffraction constant momentum transfer average (LEED/CMTA) technique is applied to the GaAs(110) surface. In addition to verifying our earlier model of the top layer atomic displacements, atomic displacements in the first subsurface layer, opposite in direction to those in the top layer, are suggested. Best estimates for atomic positions in the surface and first subsurface layers are given.
