2 February 1988 Nucleation And Growth Of Monolayers
Author Affiliations +
The recently developed microscopic approach to solid-state nucleation is applied to the case of monolayers. Using the previously defined stability factor, a criterion for nucleus stability is derived and used to analyze the stability of square nuclei on a two-dimensional square lattice. The nucleation behavior is found to be similar to that predicted by classical nucleation theories only when the binding energy is high or the temperature is low. Computer simulations indicate that this is also true for nuclei of random shapes.
