Simulation of the Oriented Crystallisation of Cu/Pd(001) Amorphous Film
Crystallisation processes of amorphous Cu-film on Pd(001) substrate have been investigated by molecular dynamics method. It has been established that the formed structure has tetragonal distortions; the elastic stresses caused by dimensional misfit of crystal lattices of the substrate and the film lead to the formation of complex defect structure changing during the annealing.
