    Low-energy electron-diffraction and surface x-ray diffraction data acquired from TiO2(110)(1×1) are reanalyzed to confirm the integrity of the previously reported optimized geometries. This work is performed in response to ab initio density-functional theory calculations that suggest that the atomic displacements determined from low-energy electron-diffraction measurements may be compromised by the limited number of optimized atom positions. Performing structural optimizations as a function of depth into the selvedge, this present study validates the previous experimental structure determinations.
