Image of FIG. 1.
FIG. 1.

(a) Schematic depiction of the three sputter guns. (b) A front view of the triangular array of sputter guns. Each gun is positioned from the center of the flange and 120° apart.

FIG. 2.

Plot showing average deposition rate vs gun current for a lead target.

Image of FIG. 3.
FIG. 3.

(Color online) A substrate prepared for deposition profile analysis. The line running through the center of the sample is where wax was removed and the depth of material is measured.

Image of FIG. 4.
FIG. 4.

(Color online) The surface concentration of Pt, Bi, and Pb as a function of distance from the gun axis. The gun currents were 112, 57, and for Pt, Bi, and Pb, respectively.
