Abstract: 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…
