Polycrystalline thin LiF films thermally evaporated on amorphous substrates show two different final crystallite orientations depending on the substrate temperature during evaporation. Successive annealing of both kinds of samples induces an orientation change to a third stable configuration. The microstructural evolution is investigated by XRD techniques and SEM. Different film residual stress states dependent on the sample thermal history are also shown. Copyright © 1995 WILEY‐VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA
