Abstract: AbstractThe formation of molecules in the interstellar medium is significantly driven by grain chemistry, ranging from simple (e.g. H2) to relatively complex (e.g. CH3OH) products. The movement of atoms and molecules on amorphous ice surfaces is not well constrained, and this is a quintessential component of surface chemistry. We show that ice structure created by utilizing an off-lattice Monte Carlo kinetics model is highly dependent on deposition parameters (i.e. angle, rate, and temperature). The model, thu…
