Barrier-limited surface diffusion in atom lithography

Abstract

Thermally activated surface diffusion has a strong influence on structure widths in atom lithography. We investigate the effects of two barriers to thermally activated atomic diffusion on atom lithography: a thermally activated Ehrlich–Schwoebel ~ES! barrier, and pollution from the residual gas in the vacuum system. We performed kinetic Monte Carlo… (More)
