Phase transformation dynamics is of current interest in terms of the scaling behavior of the growth law and the prediction of self-similar cluster size distributions. We present the first experimental data to test model predictions for coalescence, showing that recent Monte Carlo simulations agree with measurements for Ga on GaAs(001). Detailed aspects of the growth and the relationship to the theoretical assumptions are discussed.
