Abstract:
We developed a three-dimensional, atomistic model based on the kinetic Monte Carlo method to investigate how voids penetrating a monocrystalline silver film are affected by electromigration. The simulations show a clear dependency between the nonequilibrium shape of the voids and the crystallographic orientation of the film. The simulation results are in accordance with experimental results on bicrystalline silver wires.
