    Low-energy ion scattering (LEIS) provides unique information on the composition and structure of the outermost layers of a solid. Recent progress in both theory and experiment have led to the development of new methods of catalyst characterization.

    The fundamental principles of LEIS are first discussed. These principles are then applied to investigate the surface structure of oxides and La/γ-Al2O3, MO/γ -Al2O3 and Mo/SiO2. It is shown that quantification of the LEIS results seriously effects earlier models for these supports and catalysts.
