Abstract

The sheet conductance of gold condensates on MgO and a-C is expressed in terms of granulometric quantities. This expression enables us to follow the evolution of metal repartition on its substrate during the gold evaporation. The difference between the growth modes of these gold layers on MgO and on a-Cis explained by the predominance of respectively nucleation and coalescence phenomena
