RMS surface roughness (Rq) of self-assembled Au droplets at corresponding annealing temperature
Temperature (°C)
Pre-anneal 50 100 350 550 700 800 850
Rq (nm) 0.376 0.872 3.701 3.898 4.024 4.158 6.856 3.912

Rq is gradually increased at 800°C and dropped at 850°C with droplet melting potentially due to the lower eutectic melting point.
