Paper Abstract

There are three basic thin-film growth modes: Volmer-Weber (island), Frank and van der Merwe (layer), and Stranski-Krastanov (layer followed by island). Examples of these growth modes and variations thereof are presented, and the theories governing the initial and later stages of growth in each case are reviewed. Some useful applications of the theories are also given.
