We present reflection high energy electron diffraction (RHEED) spot profile analyses, which show anomalous broadening over very short time scales. Our data can only be interpreted in terms of surface melting. The conclusions are consistent with the thermodynamic phase diagrams and with the vapor-liquid-solid (VLS) mechanism of crystal growth
