    Two-dimensional ordering is achieved in a single layer of self-assembled Ge islands fabricated by molecular beam epitaxy on vicinal Si(001) surfaces with regular ripples caused by step bunching. The ripples with a typical period of about 120 nm lead to the long-range lineup of the Ge islands...
