Particle adsorption on finite-width square terraces in stepped surfaces.

The preferential adsorption on the steps of finite-width terraces is modeled by allowing lattice–adsorbate interaction at the edges (or steps) of the terrace to be different from that in the bulk. As in our previous studies, the system is at sufficiently low temperature, and at thermodynamic equilib...
