The growth dynamics of self-assembled GaSb quantum dots (QDs) on GaAs substrate in the strain-induced Stranski-Krastanov mode was investigated using kinetic Monte Carlo method. The strain induced by the lattice mismatch between the epitaxial material and the substrate was shown to be directly responsible for the QD formation and the transition of growth mode from two dimensional to three dimensional.
