The intensities of the diffraction spots for the boron induced √3X√3R30° Si (111) reconstruction in a bulk electron microscope sample examined in ultrahigh vacuum are compared with the results of multislice simulations. The intensities of the spots support the relaxed S5 model. We rule out the existence of any subsurface structure such as the stacking faults present in the Si(111) 7x7 surface.
