Determination of critical island size in para-sexiphenyl islands on SiO2 using capture-zone scaling
One of the important parameters in understanding the mechanism of the early stage of organic thin-film growth is the critical nucleus size i* . Here, submonolayer films of para -sexiphenyl grown onExpand
Order and disorder in the heteroepitaxy of semiconductor nanostructures
Abstract The heteroepitaxy of semiconductor pairs with a small lattice mismatch is a process of tremendous interest in materials science and technology. The principal mechanism of strain relief inExpand
Microphotoluminescence and perfect ordering of SiGe islands on pit-patterned Si(001) substrates.
We show that both the morphology and the optoelectronic properties of SiGe islands growing in the pits of periodically pre-patterned Si(001) substrates are determined by the amount of Ge depositedExpand
Self-Assembly in Semiconductor Epitaxy: From Growth Mechanisms to Device Applications
A key feature of epitaxial semiconductor crystal growth is the possibility of realizing different surface morphological features when growing one material on another. This is driven by many factors,Expand
Growth and self-organization of SiGe nanostructures
Many recent advances in microelectronics would not have been possible without the development of strain induced nanodevices and bandgap engineering, in particular concerning the common SiGe system.Expand
Quantum dot growth on a stripe-pattern
Abstract We study the development of the Asaro-Tiller-Grinfel'd instability on a thin strained film on top of a stripe-patterned substrate and the subsequent growth of self-organized quantum dots. WeExpand

Confinement, overflow, and emission of holes on SiGe surface with Ge dots: Heterogeneous hole redistribution and its application to virtual dot manipulation
The hole confinement in Ge dots fabricated on a wetting layer in Stranski–Krastanov (S-K) growth was directed by an applied bias. At medium bias voltage, the holes overflowed from the small dots,Expand
Progress in characterizing submonolayer island growth: Capture-zone distributions, growth exponents, & hot precursors
In studies of epitaxial growth, analysis of the distribution of the areas of capture zones (i.e. proximity polygons or Voronoi tessellations with respect to island centers) is often the best way toExpand
Correlations between optical properties and Voronoi-cell area of quantum dots
A semiconductor quantum dot (QD) can generate highly indistinguishable single photons at a high rate. For application in quantum communication and integration in hybrid systems, control of the QDExpand
