With increasing Li coverage on Cu(110), (n×1) (4 ≤ n ≤ 8) structures follow the (1 × 2) missing-row structure at room temperature. We determine the (4 × 1) structure by a dynamical low-energy electron diffraction (LEED) analysis with symmetrized automated tensor LEED. This completes the solution of the complex surface structures formed on low-index planes of copper single crystal by Li deposition. Every fourth Cu row in the  direction is substituted by Li atoms and the remaining Cu rows are covered by Li adatoms. Features of this structure, denoted as Cu(110)-(4 × 1)-3Li, are very similar to those of the previously determined Cu(001)-(3 × 3)-5Li, Cu(001)-(4 × 4)-10Li and Cu(111)-(2 × 2)-3Li structures.
