Molecular Kinetics on Steps

  • H. Bethge
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 239)


A summary of investigations of step structures, step motion and decomposition, and other kinetic processes at steps using the decoration technique is given. Diffusion along edges is considered. Heterogeneous thin-film growth under the influence of steps is discussed in terms of their impact on the well-known modes of epitaxial growth.
