Abstract

The thermally induced stresses in a thin film deposited on an infinite substrate is approximated by means of the theory of elasticity and strain energy minimization. The results are applied to the growth of a thick layer of zinc selenide onto a film of polycrystalline diamond. The conclusion is that the thermally induced stresses alone will be much higher than normally encountered in coating work.
