Morphologies of the as-deposited nanostructures. (a) Template-free rotational GLAD; (b) high template-assisted rotational GLAD; (c) high template-assisted static GLAD; (d) low template-assisted rotational GLAD. The upper row shows the front views, in which atoms are colored according to their virtual types: red, blue, and yellow stand for boundary, thermostat, and mobile atoms, respectively; the bottom row shows the top views, in which atoms are colored according to their heights.
