Thin Film Growth : the Effects of Electronics and Kinetics


The deposition of thin films is an inherently non-equilibrium thermodynamic process. Thus, kinetics often plays an important role in determining film structure and morphology. Recent growth studies of very thin metal films indicate that confinement of conduction electrons can also alter the behavior of the system such that metastable states of columnar… (More)
