Abstract

Arrays of nanosized three dimensional islands are known to self-assemble spontaneously on strained heteroepitaxial thin films. We simulate the dynamics using kinetic Monte Carlo method based on a ball and spring lattice model. Green's function and superparticle methods which greatly enhance the computational efficiency are explained.
