Figure 1.1: Schematic of several surface unit-meshes. Reconstruction/overlayers have a surface lattice unit-mesh with is different from that of the bulk unit-mesh projected unto to surface. Vectors (ab,bb) form the bulk-like unit-mesh projected onto the surface planes. Vectors (as, bs) form the surface unit-mesh. The examples are: (a) 1x1, (b) 2x2, (c) √3x√3-30, and (d) 1x3.
