ABSTRACT
We have performed a comparative transmission electron microscopy study of solid-state interdiffusion reactions in multilayered Ni/Zr and Ni/Ti thin films. The Ni-Zr reaction product was amorphous while the Ni-Ti reaction product was a simple intermetallic compound. Because thermodynamic and chemical properties of these two alloy systems are similar, we suggest kinetic origins for this difference in reaction product.

    A technique in ultraviolet nanoimprint lithography (UV-NIL) for the creation of three-dimensional (3D) nanopatterns in a single step is proposed. The single-step fabrication of 3D or multilevel structures has a multitude of benefits. Inherent in this is the elimination of a need for alignment...
