Computer Simulation of Vapor Deposition on Two-Dimensional Lattices
Abraham and White(1,16) have written computer programs that allow a user to run “computer experiments” for vapor deposition studies that include first and second nearest neighbor interactions. These Vapor Deposition Simulation programs (VDS for short) use Monte Carlo methods to determine the molecular dynamics of condensation, evaporation, and migration on lattices. Results are expressed in terms of adsorption isotherms and lattice coverages as a function of time.
