    Abstract

    A new mechanism of reflection of relativistic particles by a crystal surface at grazing angles is considered. The reflection takes place when the "transverse" energy value (connected with the particle motion perpendicular to the surface) lies in the forbidden band of the energy spectrum in a one-dimensional periodic potential which is the sum of continuous potentials of crystallographic planes being parallel to the surface.
