Abstract

The calculated angular dependence of the ion scattering surface yield for incidence near the [101] axis of Au(110) is investigated as a function of first layer relaxation. A reversal of the asymmetry of the angular dependence is observed for both large contractions and large expansions. This reversal results from shadowing in the ion flux distribution near atoms along the [101] row.
