  Using density functional theory, we have examined the adsorption of a mono-layer of silicon on Ag(111). A (4x4) super-structure is found to be stable and rippled with Si atoms occupying three levels with a maximum corrugation of 0.8Å. A detailed analysis of the bond angles for all possible configurations showed a range spanning from 320° to 355° reflecting a mixed sp2 and sp3 hybridization.
