Abstract
Nanometer-sized films of clinker phases have been prepared using electron-beam evaporation methods with the aim to produce suitable samples for nanoscale studies of hydration mechanisms and nanomechanical properties of cementitious materials. After deposition on a silicon substrate, film thicknesses and mineralogical composition were characterized by optical interferometry (OI) and grazing-angle X-ray diffraction (GAXRD), respectively. Chemical composition of samples was determined by X-ray phot...
