Abstract

The proposed work is destined to create an application that can virtually simulate the direction of growth of nanowire with the change in physical conditions like rate of absorption and desorption. To date, the modeling studies using Kinetic Monte-Carlo simulations have been primarily used to understand the crystal growth and etching processes taking place on large surfaces of 3D crystals. These studies typically simulate crystal growth on two-dimensional lattices using periodic boundary conditions. These simulation methodologies were later interpreted for whisker growth to relate growth kinetics with process conditions. The method chosen for the simulations is the Kinetic Monte-Carlo method, well known for its accuracy of the results it produces and the modest computational resources it takes.
