Paper Abstract

Fractal structures have been observed in discontinuous Mn films evaporated onto quartz-glass substrates in vacuo (10-8 Torr). The microstructures of the films were examined with high resolution electron microscope. On the basis of the micrographs, the coverage coefficients were determined for the Mn films. The fractal dimensions of Mn films were determined using the box-counting by squares method. It has been found that the fractal dimensions D depends on the film structure characterized by coverage coefficient p. In the considered coverage coefficient range the fractal dimension increases with increasing p, approaching D equals 2 for continuous films.
