Abstract

A method to model epitaxial growth including atomic detachment from island edges was developed within the context of the level set (LVST) method. By all reasonable measures, the results showed excellent agreement with kinetic Monte Carlo (KMC) simulations. Furthermore, the LVST simulations scale significantly in CPU-time demand than KMC simulations when the effective detachment rate is large.
