Metal-induced crystallization and layer exchange (LE) of amorphous carbon in thin film stacks with Ni were investigated as a function of the initial stacking order. Bilayer and triple layer stacks were exposed to heating ramps up to 700°C.
Turbostratic carbon formed during annealing. The degree of LE, quantified by ion beam analysis, is 95 % and 80 % for the outward and inward direction, respectively. Based on the calculation of surface and interface energies of the initial and final states, thermodynamic estimations pointed to the wetting of Ni grain boundaries by C atoms as the initial driving force for the LE and allowed a consistent understanding of the LE directionality and of the final thin film microstructure.
