The formation of embedded Co nanostructures is investigated on the atomic scale by performing self-learning kinetic Monte Carlo simulations. The atomic processes responsible for the formation of small nanostructures are identified. We demonstrate the specific role of the diffusion of dimers at 400 K. The diffusion of dimers leads to the acceleration of the time evolution and the decrease of the chain domination stage.
