Abstract High power density electron beams offer new opportunities for studies of epitaxial growth of semiconductor materials. Assuming that the mechanism of epitaxial growth can be understood as a surface melting followed by supercooling regrowth, the heat flow equation has been applied to calculate the temperature reached after an electron beam pulse of power density between 0.5–2 J/cm2. Comparison with laser annealing is made.
