X-ray diffraction characterization of ternary artificial superlattices


Thin films of alternating Au, Ag, and Cu wedge-shaped metal layers were made by magnetron sputtering in order to develop a method for investigation of a multicomponent systems. X-ray-diffraction patterns of all as-deposited samples revealed satellites in the vicinity of ( 111) reflections, evidence of composition-modulated artificial superlattice formation… (More)
