(Color online) Experimental spectra acquired for the determination of the growth mode by the inelastic XPS peak shape analysis.
(Color online) Initial stages of growth of deposited on , , and by plasma decomposition of a volatile precursor; surface coverage vs island height determined from the XPS peak shape analysis using the QUASES software is reported. Dashed lines indicate fixed amounts of deposited .
(Color online) Zr and Zr Auger signals coming from the Zr atoms at the successive depositions of on . Vertical dashed lines indicate the position of the corresponding peaks of bulk .
(Color online) Variation of the modified Auger parameter of the ions with the amount of deposited on , , and substrates.
(Color online) Wagner plots including experimental data (left) and chemical state vectors (right) obtained for the , , and systems.
(Color online) Schematic representation of the expected variation of the modified Auger parameter as a function of the atom position with respect to the substrate interface (lighter color indicates less influence by the substrate).
(Color online) Variation of the modified Auger parameter as a function of the averaged particle height. Experimental data are indicated as dots, and simulations according to Eq. (6) are indicated as full lines (assuming a columnar growth) and dashed lines (assuming a hemispherical shape growth).
Electronic parameters that characterize the different interface systems described in this paper. Relative coordinates of chemical state vectors are also included.
