Strain And Structure In Nano Ag Films Deposited On Au: Molecular Dynamics Simulation
Published 2014 · Materials Science
Abstract Molecular dynamics simulations are applied to analyze the stress and structure of nano Ag thin films deposited on the Au substrate. The interactions in the system are described by the embedded atom method. The kinematical theory of scattering is employed to identify the structure obtained from simulations data. Results shows that the silver layers are adjusted to the crystalline lattice of the gold buffer layers, and during the deposition process only compressive stress is observed. In all the cases the distribution of stress does not depend on temperature.
