Diffusion length of adatoms on surface during epitaxy is finite and strongly depends on growth temperature and growth rate. Formation and development process of InAs/GaAs(001) self-assembled dot is studied by minimizing strain plus surface energy of a dot, wetting layer, and substrate system within a finite area limited by the surface diffusion.
