Computer Simulation of the Early Stages of Nano Scale SiC Growth on Si
Solid source molecular beam epitaxy was applied to create silicon carbide nanoclusters on silicon. The island size distribution can be controlled by an appropriate substrate temperature, carbon fluxes and process times. Rate equation computer simulation was applied to simulate the experimental obtained nano scale nuclei properties.
