    The scattering of helium atoms from a Ge(100) surface has been studied at temperatures to within 110 K of the Ge melting point (1210 K). Although the elastic scattering is greatly attenuated as the temperature increases, the (1/2 0) and (00) helium diffraction peaks remain detectable up to 1000...

    Reorientation cross sections for He–D2(B) and He–HD(B) are reported for the energy range of 0.302×10-3–0.300 eV. The single surface scattering model and coupled-channel method used for the He–H2(B) [J. Chem. Phys. 99, 2632 (1993)] are also used for these systems....
