Kinetic coefficient of steps at the Si(111) crystal-melt interface from molecular dynamics simulations.

Abstract

Nonequilibrium molecular dynamics simulations are applied to the investigation of step-flow kinetics at crystal-melt interfaces of silicon, modeled with the Stillinger-Weber potential [Phys. Rev. B 31, 5262 (1985)]. Step kinetic coefficients are calculated from crystallization rates of interfaces that are vicinals of the faceted (111) orientation. These… (More)
