Crossover from dimer nucleation to adatom exchange during submonolayer epitaxy

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The nucleation and growth of islands in the early stages of epitaxial growth is studied with kinetic Monte Carlo Simulations and self-consistent mean field rate equations. Specifically, adatom exchange and irreversible dimer formation are allowed to compete equally as the origin of two-dimensional islands. The island size distribution and number density are found to satisfy a dynamic crossover scaling form. The critical island size evolves from one to zero with increasing temperature, decreasing flux, and increasing coverage.
