An improved atomic model of the TiO2 - cursive chi(100)-1 × 3 surface has been determined based on grazing incidence X-ray diffraction (GIXD) data analyzed by direct methods coupled with χ2 minimization. The structure contains edge- and face-sharing octahedra, similar to known defect structures in TinO2n - 1. The final structure consists of four Ti atoms and six to eight oxygen.
