    The growth morphology of Ag on GaAs (110) surface, at low coverage, is investigated with Monte Carlo simulations using a solid-on-solid model. Experimentally Ag deposited at room temperature forms isotropic islands and forms islands elongated along the 〈110〉 direction when deposited at 250°C. The preliminary results from our Monte Carlo simulations indicate that anisotropy in the surface migration and near-neighbor interactions are the main factors for the elongated islands observed for depositions performed at 250°C.
