Abstract

Low temperature epitaxy of Ge quantum dots on Si (100) - (2×1) by femtosecond pulsed laser deposition under femtosecond laser excitation was investigated. Reflection high-energy electron diffraction and atomic force microscopy were used to analyze the growth mode and morphology. Epitaxial growth was achieved at ∼70 °C by using femtosecond laser excitation of the substrate. A purely electronic mechanism of enhanced surface diffusion of the Ge adatoms is proposed. © 2011 American Institute of Physics. [doi:10.1063/1.3537813]
