The reflection of low‐energy electrons from polycrystalline metal surfaces partially coated with cesium has been investigated by the retarding potential difference technique. The technique is described and results for primary energies below 5 eV are given. Retarding potential measurements of the longitudinal component of the reflected electron energy are consistent with elastic reflection and a cosine angular distribution at low primary energy.
