The development of surface science over recent years has been characterized by a progressive shift towards the study of more complex systems than have hitherto been tractable. One direction of considerable academic and practical interest is the adsorption of chiral adsorbates onto intrinsically chiral high-index subtrates. In order to make progress, however, we must develop new conceptual tools that render the relationships between different such substrates apparent. In this presentation, I will outline a new scheme for visualising, mapping and describing the high-index surfaces of crystalline materials, highlighting a number of interesting novelties including a class of kink-free chiral surfaces; some density functional theory results on the stability of certain complex hcp surfaces will also be presented.

This talk is part of the Surfaces, Microstructure and Fracture Group series.
