Crystallization on surfaces is discussed thermodynamically. Of the three different growth mechanisms, that of growth atom-layer by atom-layer through surface nucleation (Frank-van der Merwe mechanism) occurs only for growth on material of the same composition. The growth on a different material, on the other hand, occurs, in general, by original formation of a mono- or polymolecular layer without nucleation, which then leads to formation of three-dimensional nuclei (Stranski-Krastanov mechanism), or through the formation of three-dimensional nuclei directly on the foreign substrate (Volmer-Weber mechanism) where the form and size of the nucleus cannot, in general, be determined by the Wulff-Gibbs law.
