    Abstract. Soft coatings are used on many industrial surfaces. In particular, silicone coatings are used where low-friction or low-adhesion properties are desired. Due to their softness, it has proven to be very challenging to measure the thickness of such coatings, especially on rough surfaces....

    Abstract. We present an STM study on the epitaxial growth of Dy silicides on Si surfaces, using ultra-sharp tips prepared by ion bombardment. On Si(111), 100 Angstrom wide flat surfaces are observed, which form screw dislocations at thicker coverages. On Si(001), rectangular silicide islands are...
