Paper Abstract

In this paper the crystalline and morphological properties of Pd thin films deposited on glass substrate by pulsed laser deposition (PLD) technique at different substrate temperatures have been investigated. These films were deposited with an excimer (XeCl) laser source (λ= 308 nm, pulse duration of 30 ns, repetition rate of 10 Hz).The fabricated films were characterized by various methods such as X-ray diffraction (XRD) and atomic force microscopy (AFM). The thickness and refractive index of samples were measured using ellipsometry. There was influence of substrate temperature on the surface roughness of thin film. The rms roughness increases with increasing temperature. As the temperature increase the crystallinity of the film also increases.
