Abstract

The growth of two-dimensional square spin ices at various temperatures was simulated. Slower growth rates and higher growth temperatures both increased the degree of ordering. Slightly better ordering was achieved by gradually increasing the temperature during growth, expanding the range of thicknesses over which thermal activation was able to reduce the energy of the island arrays.
