High-resolution EELS (HREELS) is a technique in which the incident electrons have a kinetic energy of a few hundred electron volts. This technique has properties of high-sensitivity and non-destructivity, which is used for the study of surface, adsorbate vibrations, low-energy electronic excitations, and electronic modes of energy loss with an energy resolution down to a few millielectron volts, as a local method that does not require long range order. The wide energy range and high momentum transfer allow determination of the complete phonon dispersions relation. This technique is widely used for studying the physics and chemistry of solid surfaces [1].
