Faceting on Si(113) surfaces misoriented towards a low-symmetry direction which is rotated by 57° from  to  has been studied using scanning tunneling microscopy. The faceting temperature of this surface is shown to be around 720°C, which is appreciably lower than those of the surfaces miscut towards the high-symmetry  direction. During faceting, the average terrace width varies as a power law versus annealing time with an exponent of∼1/6 for temperatures of 600 and 650°C in agreement with previous results for surfaces miscut towards the  direction.
