Elastic fields and energies of coherent surface islands

Abstract

We present simple models based on isotropic elasticity for determining the stress fields in the vicinity of, and the elastic energy associated with, coherent surface islands (i.e. a quantum dot or a nanorod). The first method treats the surface island as an areal point of dilatation and does not account for details of the island shape. Next, the finite… (More)
