The optical properties of the GaAs(110) surface are studied by means of self-consistent local-density slab calculations. It is found that a large contribution to the calculated anisotropy of the clean surface reflectance is related to transitions which do not involve surface states. Comparison is made with differential reflectivity and reflectance anisotropy experiments.
