X-Ray Reflectivity Analysis Incorporated with Genetic Algorithm to Analyze the Y-to X Type Transition in CdA LB Film
Jeong-Woo Choi*, Kyung Sang Cho, Hee Woo Rhee, Won Hong Lee, Han Sup Lee
The structure and layer distribution of cadmium arachidate Langmuir-Blodgett film were analyzed by the small angle X-ray reflectivity measurements using synchrotron radiation. Y-to X type transition was ocurred during the 39th passage of deposition of cadmium arachidate. Based on the measurement of the consumed area of the monolayer, it was determined that about 27.5 layer was deposited. Using the synchrotron X-ray, the reflectivity profile of cadmium arachidate LB film over the wide range of grazing angle was obtained. The X-ray reflectivity profile was analyzed using the recursion formula. By fitting the location and dispersion of the subsidiary maxima between the Bragg peaks of the measured reflectivity profile with that of the calculated reflectivity profile, the average thickness and the distribution of layer thickness were evaluated. The genetic algorithm was adopted to the fitting of reflectivity profile to evaluate the optimum value of the number distrubution of layer. Based on the morphology measurement with an atomic force microscopy (AFM), the domain structure and mean roughness of LB films were obtained. The mean roughness value calculated based on the number of layer distribution obtained from the measurement by AFM is consistent with that obtained from X-ray reflectivity analysis.
