Dendritic Growth in Si-(CN) Thin Films

Authors: A.S. Bhattacharyya, S.K.Raj, R.Ratn, Parameshwar Kommu

A rare dendritic growth in sputter deposited SiCN and CVD deposited CN were observed. The rapid rate of nucleation and growth process led to instabilities in the growth pattern and the surface energy release rate was more through convection than diffusion It opens up new field of fractal study in the case of CN and SiCN based materials and thin films.
