Surface Diffusion (Part 1): PART1; PART2; PART3

starting from an ideal vicinal (100) surface in slow motion

3D Lattice Kinetic Monte Carlo Simulation

  • perspective view

  • conserved-order-parameter Ising model with nearest neighbor (NN) interaction JNN

  • f.c.c. lattice (12NNs; JNN/kTc = 0.40837)

  • here: JNN/kT = 2.5

  • color key: coordination number from red (monomers) to purple (12NNs)

  • time is measured in Monte Carlo steps (MCS)
