Surface Structure

Surface Crystallography

Class notes in Adobe Acrobat format are in this link: STRUCT.PDF

You may explore surface structures you specify in the Surface Explorer. Samples of interesting structures can be found in this gallery. A wide variety of surfaces of face-centered cubic (fcc) crystals is shown in  this site.  Some examples for fcc lattices are:
