Island formation energy divided by island volume plotted as a function of volume on a logarithmic scale, for and various values of .
Island chemical potential plotted as a function of volume on a logarithmic scale, for and various values of .
Evolution of a uniform initial distribution for the case with . (a) The evolution with time in the presence of a deposition flux . The solid arrow indicates the chemical potential minimum. (b) The subsequent evolution with time on annealing . The starting distribution at is the same as the final distribution at in (a). (c) Evolution with time on annealing as in (b), but starting the anneal at with the distribution corresponding to the shorter deposition time in (a).
