FIG. 1.

AFM images for coverages of 1.54 ML (a) and 1.61 ML (b). “A” are QDs nucleated over the step edge, “B” are QDs that have partially eroded the step edge, and “C” QDs that have completely eroded it. (c) AFM image showing plane erosion occurring for 2.4 ML InAs growth at 522 °C (“D” are QDs after plane erosion). Bottom panels show schematic 3D views of QDs before and after the step or the plane erosion.

Image of FIG. 2.
FIG. 2.

QDs volume plotted as a function of InAs coverage. The lowest straight curve indicates the InAs flux above the 2D–3D transition.

Image of FIG. 3.
FIG. 3.

(a) Fraction of QDs below a step vs InAs coverage. (b) Volume drawn from the steps vs InAs coverage. The curves are guides for the eyes.
