Asymptotics of capture zone distributions in a fragmentation-based model of submonolayer deposition

Research output: Research - peer-reviewArticle

We consider the asymptotics of the distribution of the capture zones associated with the islands nucleated during submonolayer deposition onto a one-dimensional substrate. We use a convolution of the distribution of inter-island gaps, the asymptotics of which is known for a class of nucleation models, to derive the asymptotics for the capture zones. The results are in broad agreement with published Monte Carlo simulation data (O'Neill et al., 2012) [13].
