Atomistic Simulations of Metallic Cluster Coalescence
A new computational method is introduced to investigate the stresses developed in the island-coalescence stage of polycrystalline film formation during deposition. The method uses molecular dynamics to examine the behavior ...
Metallic Cluster Coalescence: Molecular Dynamics Simulations of Boundary Formation
During the evaporative deposition of polycrystalline thin films, the development of a tensile stress at small film thicknesses is associated with island coalescence. Several continuum models exist to describe the magnitude ...
