Surface vibrations on a TiO2(100) surface have been investigated with high-resolution electron-energy-loss spectroscopy at a resolution of 10 meV. The energy-loss spectra are interpreted in terms of single- and multiple-phonon excitation of long-wavelength Fuchs-Kliewer surface optical modes. The observed frequencies are in good agreement with the predictions of dielectric response theory.
