DoITPoMS Standalone simulation Library

Standalone simulation Library

A library of 2 simulations. Standalone simulations are self explanatory and need no supporting pages in order to carry out the simulation.

Epitaxial growthEpitaxial growth

This TLP enables you to explore the way in which perfect thin crystalline layers are deposited epitaxially (i.e. in the same crystal orientation) on semiconductor substrates. This is the way many electronic and opto-electronic devices are now fabricated using techniques such as molecular beam epitaxy (MBE).


During the rolling of metal sheet, the length of the sheet increases in proportion to the reduction in its thickness. The predictions shown in the simulation were obtained by running a Finite Element Model (FEM) for several pre-selected cases.
