Ultrafast Electron Crystallography of Surface Structural Dynamics with Atomic-Scale Resolution


A formidable contender to X-ray diffraction is ultrafast electron crystallography. Whereas the former is more suited to investigate the bulk of the substrate, the time, length, and sensitivity scales of electron crystallography provide powerful and complementary information on atomic-scale structural dynamics at the surface (see diffraction image of GaAs crystal).
