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 ...
Research on Polycrystalline Films for Micro- and Nano-Systems
Polycrystalline films are used in a wide array of micro- and nano-scale devices, for electronic, mechanical, magnetic, photonic and chemical functions. Increasingly, the properties, performance, and reliability of films ...
