Abstract [en]

A framework for constructing kinetic monte carlo (KMC) simulations of diffusive events on a lattice was developed. This code was then tested by running simulations of Fe adatom diffusion on graphene and graphene-boron nitride surfaces. The results from these simulations was then used to show that the modeled diffusion adheres to the laws of brownian motion and generates results similar to recent research findings.
