Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

159 Scopus citations


The dependence of silver resistivity on film thickness during temperature ramping was discussed. The in situ van der Pauw four point probe analysis was used to determine the onset temperature. The thermal stability of Ag thin films on silica in a vacuum was greatest when thicknesses were greater than 85 nm.
