This review critically compiles all surface structures derived by ion‐scattering techniques reported in the refereed literature prior to January 1988. They are compared with the more extensive low‐energy electron diffraction database reported previously [J. Phys. Chem. Ref. Data 16, 953 (1957)]. These investigations cover all types of surfaces including clean and adsorbate‐covered metal, semiconductor, and other nonmetallic substrates. The important experimental and theoretical aspects of such investigations have been extracted into easily understood tabular form supplemented by many figures and ancillary tables and complete references. It is hoped that this compilation will provide a valuable resource both for the surface science specialist and for those nonspecialists in other areas who need surface crystallographic data.
