dc.description.abstractThe growth and surface morphology of indium and aluminum nanostructures on highly oriented pyrolytic graphite (HOPG) and molybdenum disulphide (MoS2) surfaces were investigated using scanning tunneling microscopy in ultra-high vacuum. Mostly triangular and hexagonal In islands with (111) orientation were obtained along the steps of HOPG at room temperature (RT). Triangular, round-shape and large irregular In islands were found on MoS2 surfaces at different growth conditions. Al island chains as well as isolated triangular islands were found on HOPG whereas nanoparticles and ramified Al islands were obtained on MoS2 at RT. The shapes of these self-assembled metal nanostructures were controlled by varying growth conditions. The different shapes of nanostructures on these inert substrates can be explained in terms of differences in energetic and kinetic properties of atoms and clusters of each elements as well as the nature of substrates. © 2009 Elsevier B.V.
