Using in situ reflection high-energy electron diffraction analysis and chemical etching it is shown that CdTe grown on Bi layers deposited on CdTe (1̄1̄1̄)B terminated surfaces result in (111)A terminated surfaces. The Bi layers exhibit streaked diffraction patterns with clear Kikuchi lines; this is the first direct evidence for the layer by layer two-dimensional growth of Bi on CdTe by molecular beam epitaxy.
