The basic concepts of photoelectron diffraction are briefly introduced. The increasing number of synchrotron beam lines devoted to this type of experiments is explained by the variety of surface phenomena that can be studied. New developments, such as the measurement of full hemispherical angular distributions, photoelectron holography, energy-scanned photoelectron diffraction, chemical-state resolved photoelectron diffraction, and spin-polarized photoelectron diffraction all benefit from the special attributes of synchrotron radiation.
