Using scanned-energy mode photoelectron diffraction we show that in the Pd{111} (√3 ×√3)R30°-CO phase fee hollow sites are occupied with a carbon-Pd layer spacing of 1.27 (±0.05) Å. This agrees very well with a relatively early LEED result of the Somorjai group and indicates that the experimental problems associated with applying scanned-energy mode photoelectron diffraction to second row transition metal substrates are not insurmountable.
