Abstract

Projection force density methods, based on the surface Green's function approach, are employed to obtain analytical expressions for the elastic interaction and self-relaxation energies of coherently strained conical islands. These results are used to evaluate the island chemical potential as the basis for coarsening models and a stability analysis of elastically interacting quantum dot arrays.
