Title: Surface Growth in Laser-Focused Atomic Deposition
Published: July 15, 1999
Abstract: We present calculations of surface growth in laser-focused nanostructure fabrication. We show that theoretical predictions of the structure profile s shape depend sensitively on the model used to describe the growth, and also on the parameters chosen within the model. This sensitivity illustrates that growth effects can play a major role in laser-focused atomic deposition, and also suggests that this process could be utilized for studies of surface growth mechanisms.
