Abstract

It has previously been suggested, based upon multislice calculations, that electron diffraction from a surface reconstruction can be interpreted kinematically with a pseudo-kinematical condition setup for the underlying crystal. These calculations were carried out under conditions where the numerical multislice integration would not have fully converged. The intention of this note is to provide direct experimental evidence from the boron-doped Si(111)√3×√3 R30° surface that the kinematical assertion is valid.
