Abstract

The origin of spin-polarisation in low energy electron diffraction is reviewed. The density matrix description of spin-dependent scattering is introduced and applied to the measurement of spin-polarisation in a Mott analyser. Theoretical intensity and polarisation versus energy curves are presented for LEED from W (001). The results indicate that spin-polarisation analysis could enhance the power of LEED for surface structural analysis.
