Abstract
High-resolution electron microscopy has been used to characterize the structure of ultra-thin films of titanium deposited on KBr substrate by ultra-high vacuum (UHV) electron-gun evaporation. The size of the grains has an order of magnitude of 10 nm whatever is the substrate temperature. The observations have been carried out along the <112¯3> zone axis. Some of the grains contain planar defects that were identified as the twin {101¯1}. The atomic structure of this twin is characterized by a m...
