    An experimental high-resolution image of a solid-liquid interface of solid Si and liquid Al-Si alloy has been compared with theoretical images obtained by computer simulation. It has been concluded that the solid-liquid interface has a transition layer, the structure of which is compatible with the 1 × 1 Si-{111} surface.
