Research Abstract:
For decades, it was widely accepted that nanoscale equilibrium-thickness amorphous films could exist only at grain boundaries or hetero-phase interfaces between two crystalline grains (known as intergranular glassy films or IGFs). The theory was recently challenged: stable surficial amorphous films more info
