Abstract : The report outlines experimental research concerned with several areas of non-reactive atom-surface interactions, performed with modulated molecular-beam techniques. Included are general scattering studies from Mg(0001), Ag(001), Si(111) and macroscopically rough surfaces; atom diffraction from LiF(001); 'rainbow' scattering from LiF(001); symmetry in gas-surface interactions; and determination of surface Debye temperatures using atom-beam scattering as a probe.
