Figure 5: Initial input configurations considered in the kMC simulations: (a) random distribution of 3375 adatoms; (b) two islands with 52 and 508 atoms, respectively; (c) round island with 912 Atoms; (d) squared island with 256 Atoms. The Au adatoms are depicted in red while the Au(100) surface atoms are shown in yellow.
