A discussion about the atomic arrangement at the AlN/Si (111) interface was presented. The investigation of the atomic arrangement was done using high-resolution electron microscopy. The observation of crystallographically abrupt interface along most of the epilayer indicated that the AlN/Si interface was thermodynamically stable and of high crystalline quality.
