ABSTRACTGrowth kinetics and thermodynamic equilibrium can both be determining factors at different stages of III-V semiconductor heteroepitaxy. We study their interplay, employing kinetic Monte Carlo simulations for the InAs(001) surface. The simulation contains atomistic details of both species, including the stability of different reconstructions and their kinetics. The behavior of the surface in thermodynamic equilibrium, including different reconstructions, is determined exclusively by extensive total ene…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
