Atomistic rigid lattice Kinetic Monte Carlo (KMC) is an efficient method for simulating nano-objects and surfaces at timescales much longer than those accessible by molecular dynamics. A laborious and non-trivial part of constructing any KMC model is, however, to calculate all migration barriers that are needed to give the probabilities for any atom jump event to occur in the simulations. We have calculated three data sets of migration barriers for Cu self-diffusion with two different methods. The data sets were specifically calculated for rigid lattice KMC simulations of copper self-diffusion on arbitrarily rough surfaces, but can be used for KMC simulations of bulk diffusion as well.
