Abstract: We report a comparison between theory and experiment for a general stress-induced morphological growth instability that is kinetically rather than energetically driven. Stress variations along a perturbed planar growth front result in variations in interfacial mobility in a manner that is destabilizing under one sign of the stress state and stabilizing under the opposite sign, even for a pure material. Investigation of solid-phase epitaxial growth at a corrugated Si(001) interface under both compression and tension results in good agreement between experiment and theory with no adjustable parameters, demonstrating that this mobility-based mechanism is dominant in determining morphological evolution in this system.
