Self-Induced Islands in Lattice Mismatched Systems

Part of the NanoScience and Technology book series (NANO)


Chapter 3 is devoted to self-induced nanoislands of three types: the Stranski-Krastanow semiconductor quantum dots, III-V nanoneedles on lattice mismatched substrates and metal islands on insulators. General theory is applied for growth modeling of different nanostructures and formulating the kinetically controlled knobs to tune the resulting morphology. Theoretical predictions are compared with many experimental data.
