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 on
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 deposited
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,
Fabrication of light-trapping structure by selective etching of thin Si substrates masked with a Ge dot layer and nanomasks
A light-trapping structure was fabricated on crystalline Si wafers. In this method, a Ge/Si(001) self-assembled dot structure was etched using KOH and a commercial alkaline solution including
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 to
