The adsorption of atomic hydrogen on Si112 has been investigated using scanning tunneling microscopy. The clean 112 surface is reconstructed into quasiperiodic nanofacts each composed of a 111 and 337 terrace, and we find that atomic hydrogen does not remove this nanofacet structure at room temperature or 430 deg. C. This result demonstrates the surprising stability of the facet reconstruction.
