FIG. 1.

Comparison of heterogeneous 3D nucleation on nonreactive and reactive substrates: (a) a cluster of radius R and contact angle forms on a nonreactive surface due to deposition from the vapor phase; (b) the formation of a double cap-shaped oxide island on a metal substrate, where the embedding of the oxide island is caused by the localized reaction, leading to incorporation of underlying substrate atoms into the oxide phase. The upper cap has radius and contact angle , and the bottom cap has radius of and contact angle .

Dependence of the factor on the contact angle of the nucleating phase with the metal substrate.
