    A 180° deflection toroidal analyzer is a novel electron spectrometer, which allows the simultaneous registration of the wide range of polar angles in a given azimuth of the sample. Therefore, measurements of photo- and Auger electron intensities over π steradians can be performed rapidly by azimuthal rotation of the sample. Using this analyzer, two-dimensional patterns of electron-beam-excited O KVV and Mg KVV Auger electron diffraction (AED) from a MgO(001) surface were measured in short acquisition times. The AED patterns obtained were compared with theoretical ones calculated by the multiple-scattering scheme. The agreement between experimental and theoretical data was good for both O KVV and Mg KVV transitions.
