The distribution of mercury atoms scattered from NaCl KCl, KBr KI has been studied by means of an ionization gauge as a function of angle of incidence and temperatures of scatterer and incident beam. The direction of maximum intensify makes an angle with the crystal normal not equal to the angle of incidence but always slightly less.
