Paper Abstract

The structure of monolayer (adatom island) is investigated with taking into account of relaxation of atoms in a changeless field of substrate, which is incommensurate to the monolayer structure. The influence of relaxation of the structure and shape of adatom island on its orientation in relation to the structure of substrate is shown. It is established that the monolayer structure has a superstructure with periodicity which is inversely proportional to the incommensurability. It is shown that the shape of an island and its orientation in relation to the structure of substrate changes during its growth. The results of calculations are compared to the experiment.
