Abstract

The distributions of the size of islands and of the capture zones are discussed comparatively, both experimentally and numerically, for the case of a sudden nucleation process with and without coarsening. The experiments were performed by growing InAs islands on GaAs(001) and the coarsening was altered by varying the temperature. In the two-dimensional kinetic Monte Carlo simulations a single-species diffusing adatom was taken into account, and the coarsening was altered in this case by modifying the binding energy between adatoms and islands. The results show that size and capture zone distributions overlap only when coarsening can be disregarded.
