Spin-polarized LEED intensities have been calculated for the W(001) surface for a variety of surface barriers and compared with both spin-polarized measurements (15° ≤ angle of incidence Θ≤45°) and high resolution unpolarized data (Θ=48°). Observed features, in particular the striking differences between spin-up and spin-down intensities, are reproduced satisfactorily by a barrier with an image plane 3.3 bohr from the outermost atomic layer and with a value of 70% of the bulk inner potential at that layer.
