Kinetic properties of adatoms in Sine-Gordon model


The model for describing kinetic properties of adatoms on an anisotropic substrate is proposed. The kinetic equation for 1D adatom localized structures is constructed in the frame of the Sine-Gordon model. The self-diffusion coefficient for adatoms is calculated and the process of their homogenization is discussed.
