Paper Abstract

The modification of Cabrera and Levine formula which describes step distance on crystal surface is proposed. Replacing of bulk supersaturation by theoretically calculated surface supersaturation makes the so modified Cabrera and Levine approximation usable for both low and high supersaturations. In the case of middle values of supersaturations which are most frequently used in crystal growth practice, the modified approximation gives better results than other approximations.
