The Si(111) 7×7 reconstruction was one of the most complicated surface structures. It took surface scientists over 25 years to solve its structure. It has been a test bed for many important surface imaging and analysis techniques, including scanning tunneling microscope (STM) and atomic force microscope (AFM). This animation helps the viewers to understand this surface structure.
