Title: Thermionic emission microscopy of scandium thin film dewetting on W(100)

Abstract

Scandium thin films of 5-30 nm thickness deposited on clean W(100) surfaces de-wet from the tungsten surface when heated to temperatures < 0.5 T melt. The dewetting temperature and the resulting droplet size are a function of the initial scandium film thickness.
