    Abstract. Molybdenum films sputter-deposited at low pressure show a (110) to (211) texture turnover with increasing film thickness, which is accompanied by a transition from a fiber texture to a mosaic-like texture. The degree of (002) texturing of sputtered aluminum nitride (A1N) films strongly...
