Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


By using classical molecular dynamics technique we have simulated the effects of 5 keV Xe atoms impinging on the strained Ge(1 0 0) 2×1 surface. We found that large adatom islands are formed on top of the amorphous zones created by the cascades. We also found that lattice atoms around the molten zone move radially inwards and thus cause strain relief in the sample.
