    A lateral size of an atomically flat oxidized region on a Si(111) surface was found to be in the rage from 3 to 6 nm at an average oxide film thickness of 0.7 nm, which corresponds to two molecular layers of silicon dioxide, from the measurement of effect of terrace width on the layer-by-layer oxidation.
