Metal-ceramic interfaces are important in applications as diverse as magnetic storage media and supported catalysts. It is very important to understand how the crystallography and microstructure of metallic films deposited onto ceramic substrates depend on growth and/or annealing conditions so that their physical properties (e.g. magnetic, electronic, etc.) can be tailored for specific applications. To this end, we have studied the epitaxial growth and annealing of (001) and (111) Ni films MBE grown on MgO substrates, where we have observed the evolution of the surface using correlated in-situ RHEED (reflection high-energy-electron diffraction) and STM (scanning tunneling microscopy) measurements.
