Stacking sequence and relaxation of the natural MoS2(001) surface structure were determined with coaxial impact collision ion scattering spectroscopy (CAICISS) under ultra high vacuum. We concluded that the surface stacking sequence of MoS2 is hexagonal and there is no lateral translation of atomic layers near the surface. We also determined that the interlayer spacing contracts by 3.6 ± 0.4% for the top interlayer (d12) and by 0 to 2% for the subsequent interlayer (d23).
