Three-dimensional AFM images and size distributions of Au particles. Three-dimensional AFM images of depositions of Au on (a) Si and (b) SiO2 substrates, respectively, and the size distributions of Au particles grown on (c) Si and (d) SiO2 substrates, respectively. Curved lines are the fitting results.
