2 February 1988 Computer Simulation Of The Nucleation And Growth Of Optical Coatings
Author Affiliations +
Comprehensive computer experiments have been performed on various aspects of thin film deposition and growth in attempts to bridge the gap between theoretical predictions and experimental observations and to facilitate the development a realistic model for predictive purposes. The results enhance our understanding of the underlying physical processes and provide a vehicle for demonstrating relationships between fabrication conditions and subsequent film properties. Ultimately, we hope that this understanding will improve process reproducibility and promote our ability to produce desirable film properties. This paper comprehensively surveys the modeling of amorphous solids and, in the course of examining prior simulations of thin film deposition and growth, identifies areas that warrant particular attention.
