    The physical system under study is a single crystal film grown epitaxially on a substrate of comparable thickness which is constrained to remain flat. In general, the layers are strained due to a mismatch in lattice parameter between the film and substrate materials. The free energy change of...

    Island growth has been shown to also occur for atomic layer deposition (ALD) processes. This article presents a relatively simple analytical model using geometrical principles with few independent variables on evolution of thickness and roughness in island-dominated ALD processes. The model is...
