Abstract Based on molecular-dynamics simulations using the Tersoff interatomic potential, Motooka recently proposed an atomistic model for solid-phase epitaxial (SPE) growth onto a Si(001) substrate [Phys. Rev. B >61, 8537 (2000)]. In their model, the SPE growth mode and its activation energy are different in the lower (1450{endash}1600 K) and higher temperature (1600{endash}2000 K) regions. In this Comment, we show that the amorphous-to-liquid phase transition occurs above {similar_to}1650 K, so Motooka{close_quote}s simulations do not reproduce the SPE processes at higher temperature.
