Abstract

-approximant. Growth on the quasicrystal corresponds to a version of the Volmer Weber growth, but modified by quantum size effects, and also by kinetic smoothening at low T and low coverages (theta). Growth on the approximant corresponds to a version of the Stranski Krastanov growth modified by kinetic roughening at low T and low theta. For larger theta, i.e., for thicker films, distinct behavior is observed.
