AbstractStep asymmetry induced step bunching of a vicinal surface during deposition is investigated analytically and by kinetic Monte Carlo simulation. Specifically, effect of a negative Ehrlich-Schwoebel (ES) barrier at a downward step versus a positive incorporation barrier at an upward step edge is compared. It is found that a positive incorporation barrier can in general result in step bunching, whereas a negative ES barrier usually does not. © 2002 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
