Higher Order Regularization of Anisotropic Geometric Evolution Equations in Three Dimensions
Understanding the dynamics of crystalline surfaces on a nanometer scale is one of the key issues for several semiconductor applications. We consider the thermal faceting of such surfaces resulting from strong anisotropies and generalize recently proposed geometric evolution laws based on curvature dependent free energy densities. Mathematical arguments on the regularity of the solution in 3D lead us to new evolution laws which are based on free energy functions including not only the curvature but also its derivative.
