Abstract

A series of Cu/Pd superlattices with composition modulation wavelengths (A's) ranging from 1.6 to 3.5 nm and a strong [111] growth texture were prepared by electron beam evaporation. The elastic properties of the films were examined using the methods of uniaxial tension tests [a Young's modulus (1/sn), where sijis an elastic compliance] with the applied load parallel to the plane of the Cu/Pd interface and Brillouin scattering [a shear modulus (1/s44) with the shear waves parallel to the plane of the Cu/Pd interface]. Also, the films were characterized using both x-ray diffraction and high-resolution electron microscopy; this was done to assess the effect of the nanostructure on a possible “supermodulus effect.” The films are nanostructurally very similar to the superlattice films employed in previous studies at Northwestern in which a supermodulus effect was reported. But, contrary to previous studies, no anomalous behavior was observed for the measured elastic properties of the thin films. Therefore the present results negate the earlier results and cast a serious doubt on the existence of a supermodulus effect.
