The purpose of this paper is to report some new experimental and theoretical results about the analysis of in-plane lattice spacing oscillations during two-dimensional (2D) homo and hetero epitaxial growth. The physical origin of these oscillations comes from the finite size of the strained islands. The 2D islands may thus relax by their edges, leading to in-plane lattice spacing oscillations during the birth and spread of these islands. On the one hand, we formulate the problem of elastic… CONTINUE READING
