Abstract

The (001 hydrogen-bonded and methyl-terminated surfaces of guanidinium methanesulfonate previously studied by means of the He diffraction were examined in greater detail. Using bound state resonances effects, for the first time, four levels of the energy spectrum of the He-MT surface potential averaged on the unit cell were determined and an estimation of the potential was calculated.
