We present kinetic lattice Monte Carlo simulations of the Si (100) surface. Taking into account the known anisotropy produced by the surface reconstruction, we examine the diffusion properties of Si ad-dimers and adatoms on the surface. Our results show a transition from quasi-one-dimensional diffusion to two-dimensional motion as the temperature is raised.
