Wetting Property of Tin Nanoparticles Thin Films

O. S. Mahdi, Nadheer Jassim Mohammed

Abstract


Thin film was formed by the method of thermal evaporation of tin. To studying the obtained thin film, we used a field emission scanning electron microscope. The resulting image is processed using the Gwyddion 2.20 program, which is used to determine the values of the contact angles of wetting with a tin of the substrate surface and the diameter of the drops. Droplet experiments were carried out to describe the wettability behavior of the textured surfaces used in this research. The clusters can take various forms, for example, a sphere or a hemisphere. We saw that the adhesion is good when the temperature is 250 C for a substrate. In addition, an important parameter at the stage of clusters is their size distribution, since it significantly affects the morphology of the film grown at the second stage.
