We review the basic ideas of holographic LEED, and the latest progress in the field. We compare several proposed computer reconstruction schemes. Using experimental diffuse LEED data from O/Ni(001) and K/Ni(001) surfaces, we show that the capability now exists for filtering out the effects on the diffraction patterns of possible long-range order amongst the adsorbates, thus making holographic LEED much more analogous to photoelectron holography. Inclusion of a scattered-wave kernel to compensate for the variation of the magnitude of the reference wave at the positions of potential object-wave sources enables the reconstruction of a fully three-dimensional image of substrate atoms in the immediate vicinity of atomic adsorbates from a set of just normal-incidence diffuse LEED patterns.
