The diffraction of atoms from stepped surfaces is treated using the semiclassical S-m trix theory. Two different regimes of the behavior of the classical trajectories, regular and chaotic, are considered. For the latter case, the diffraction order function presents a fractal structure, and there is an infinite number of trajectories connecting the initial… CONTINUE READING
