The original Hamilton and Seidensticker model may explain the anisotropic growth of nonionic fcc crystals, provided stringent requirements for the nucleation of one-dimensional clusters (i.e., strings) are satisfied. However, revisions that account for the drop in the coordination number during growth are necessary for the general applicability of the model.

- Defects and impurities in crystals
