FIG. 1.

SEM images of (a) continuous and (b)–(d) patterned Au films that have undergone solid-state dewetting. (a) A continuous film dewets into islands/particles with broadly distributed sizes and spacings. The film thickness is 30 nm. (b) A single Au particle developed when an square pattern dewet. (c) A single row of three particles developed when a rectangular pattern dewet. (d) Double rows of two particles developed when a square pattern dewet. Scale .

FIG. 2.

Characteristics of dewetted particles as a function of pattern width, , length, , and film thickness, . (a) The relationship between particle spacing and of long lines and closed circular lines patterned from 120 nm thick films. (b) The relationship between particle spacing and for rectangles of length . (c) Particle spacing vs. with fixed and (120 nm). (d) Average particle diameter as a function of film thickness for rectangles.

FIG. 3.

Three-dimensional probability maps for (a) SOP and (b) SP ordering as a function of the pattern width to film thickness ratio and pattern length to film thickness ratio of rectangular patterns. The contours represent probabilities from 0 to 1.
