### VLS Nanowire Simulations — Exchange barrier

Filed under: KMC, Nanowire — Kris Reyes @ 6:10 pm

In this note, we continue to study the effect of energy parameters have on the growth modes observed in VLS nanowire growth. Here we consider the energy $\epsilon$, the additive barrier for exchanges at solid/liquid interface. This governs the attachment and detachment kinetics of solid material to and from the interface, and hence roughly measures the mobility of the interface.
