Simulation of self-organized growth kinetics of quantum dots
The growth of sub-monolayer islands in heteroepitaxial semiconductor systems is simulated by means of the Monte Carlo method. As the relevant processes, deposition, diffusion and nearestand


Combination of random-barrier and random-trap models
The temperature dependence of the diffusion coefficient of particles is studied on lattices with disorder. A model is investigated with both trap and barrier disorder that was introduced earlier by Y
Step Motion on Crystal Surfaces. II
It is postulated that steps on crystal surfaces capture atoms diffusing on the surface with certain probabilities and, in addition, that the capture probability depends on the direction from which

The coupled rate equations for the occupation probability of an adatom at a sufficiently long time are solved analytically, in analogy to the tight-binding theory of electronic structure, and the general relation between the hopping rates and the diffusion coefficient is derived.
Anisotropy of Growth of the Close-Packed Surfaces of Silver.
Using density functional theory calculations of self-diffusion on flat and stepped Ag(100) it is found that at flat regions a hopping mechanism is favored, while across step edges diffusion proceeds by an exchange process.
Atomic View of Surface Self‐Diffusion: Tungsten on Tungsten
Surface diffusion of tungsten adatoms on several smooth, low‐index planes of the tungsten lattice has for the first time been followed by direct observation of individual atoms in the field‐ion
