The structural and morphological control of nanosized Cu islands on SiO2 using a Ti underlayer were discussed. It was found that the Cu islands on Ti/SiO2 possessed smaller sizes, shorter interisland distance and a higher number density that those on SiO2. The analysis suggested the fabrication of nanosized islands with the desired wettability and crystalline orientation using an appropriate metal underlayer.
