Abstract

Various aspects of strain-assisted nanopatterning of periodically strained surfaces are investigated using kinetic Monte Carlo simulations. The optimal growth conditions for various material systems can be predicted, as we demonstrate for the model system Co on Pt(111). Both strain relaxation and modified potential energy barriers at step edges, i.e. the Ehrlich-Schwoebel (ES) barriers are found to be of large importance for the nanopatterning.
