Title: Absorption of mercury in gold films and its further desorption: Quantitative morphological study of the surface patterns
Abstract: A thin film of Au exposed to mercury vapor disrupts forming separated of AuHg amalgam. After evaporation of Hg at high temperature An are formed and the domain pattern changes. A detailed morphological analysis and comparison of two types of patterns before and after the evaporation of Hg is performed. We found that during the evaporation of Hg at high temperature the decrease their sizes and their shapes become more circular. The pattern formed by the amalgam domains is found to be by one length scale. After the removal of mercury the length scale vanishes and the structure function takes the shape typical for the random droplet morphologies.
