Paper Abstract

Analyses of the top-surface morphology of columnar thin films (CTFs) of silver, grown by a combination of the usual oblique-angle-deposition technique with very fast substrate rotation, confirm that silver CTFs consist of more isolated and quasiperiodically distributed nanowires for higher vapor incidence angle during deposition. The top surfaces then are well-suited for the exploitation of surface-enhanced Raman scattering and localized surface-plasmon resonance.
