FIG. 1.

(Color online) Top view of the bulk truncated Si(103) surface. The larger (green) atoms have two dangling bonds, the intermediate-sized (red) ones have one dangling bond, and the small gray atoms are four coordinated. The unit vectors of the unreconstructed primitive cell are and , where is the lattice constant of Si and and are the unit vectors along and [010], respectively. The rectangles show the unit cells for the (solid line), the (dash line), and the (dotted line) reconstructions.

Histograms of the surface energies retrieved by the genetic algorithm for the (a) , (b) , and (c) reconstructions.

FIG. 3.

(Color) Model reconstructions (top views) for the Si(103) surface (a)–(f). Structures (a)–(e) have been obtained in this work, while panel (f) shows the model previously proposed the (103) orientation (Refs. 4 and 5). Atoms are colored according to their coordinates along [103], from red (highest position) to blue (lowest position in the slab shown); the periodic cell is marked by a rectangle in each case. The table (inset) shows the surface energy of models (a)–(f) calculated using the Lenosky et al. (Ref. 9) potential, and their number of dangling bonds per unit area.
