The initial oxidation of planar and facetted aluminum (111) surfaces was studied with low energy electron diffraction (LEED) and Auger electron spectroscopy (AES). The facetted surface was produced by rapidly heating the planar (111) surface to 773 K, and consisted of (111) and (221) planes. The planar surface showed first oxide-like aluminum at 50 L; however, the facetted surface showed first oxide at
