Abstract

We present a novel kinetic Monte Carlo version for the atomistic valence force fields algorithm in order to model a self-assembled quantum dot growth process. We show our atomistic model is both computationally favorable and capture more details compared to traditional kinetic Monte Carlo models based on continuum elastic models. We anticipate the model will be useful to experimentalists in understanding better the growth dynamics of quantum dot systems.
