Abstract:The formation of thin films by electron bombardment has been studied and some of the important factors controlling the nature and surface characteristics of the films have been identified. A number of experimental techniques have been developed in order to obtain information on both the species likely to be involved in film growth and also the nature of the film surfaces. The surface characteristics have been monitored by contact angle studies,The possible importance of negative ions in film formation is illus… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students and researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
