Does the new version supersede the previous version?: No
Nature of problem:
The programs compute the RHEED intensities during the growth of thin epitaxial structures prepared using the molecular beam epitaxy (MBE). The computations are based on the use of kinematical diffraction theory .
Epitaxial growth of thin films is modelled by a set of non-linear differential equations . The Runge-Kutta method with adaptive stepsize control was used for solving initial value problem for non-linear differential equations .
Reasons for new version:
In line with the users' suggestions we improved the functionality of the program. Moreover, we added new capabilities which make the input data design process and output even easier and more efficient than the previous one.
Summary of revisions:
The programs are distributed in the form of source projects GROWTHGr.dpr and GROWTH06.bdsproj with associated files, and should be compiled using Borland Delphi compilers versions 5 or later and Delphi Borland Developer Studio 2006, respectively.
The typical running time is machine and user-parameters dependent.
