A study of the pair distribution function of self-organized Ge quantum dots
Bernardi, Marco, Sgarlata, Anna, Fanfoni, Massimo, Balzarotti, Adalberto, & Motta, Nunzio (2008) A study of the pair distribution function of self-organized Ge quantum dots. Applied Physics Letters, 93(3), 031917.
We explore the use of the pair distribution function to study the self-organization process of Ge quantum dots on both nanopatterned and nonpatterned oxidized Si(001) surfaces. Dots formation and ordering upon annealing of a Ge thin film are analyzed. The method we use is not limited to this case study. We show how it can be applied to determine short and long range self-ordering of nanostructures. We support our results by applying a software routine to simulate patterns of dots to finally spot the relevant physical aspects of Ge islands self-assembly.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
