Ion bombardment of a sinusoidal wave geometry. Ion flux density, J, incident at an angle θ with respect to mean surface plane is shown. Local surface gradient, tan <a onClick="popup('http://www.nanoscalereslett.com/content/8/1/289/mathml/M2','MathML',630,470);return false;" target="_blank" href="http://www.nanoscalereslett.com/content/8/1/289/mathml/M2">View MathML</a>. Sinusoidal wave is described by h = h0 sin(2πx/λ), where λ is the wavelength of the ripples, and h0 is the amplitude.
