Abstract: Cobalt (Co) sputter deposition onto a colloidal polymer template is investigated using grazing incidence small-angle
X-ray scattering (GISAXS), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), and atomic force microscopy (AFM). SEM and
AFM data picture the sample topography, GISAXS the surface and near-surface film structure. A two-phase model is
proposed to describe the time evolution of the Co growth. The presence of the colloidal template results in the correlated
deposition of an ultrathin Co film on the sample surface and thus in the creation of Co capped polystyrene (PS) colloids.
Well below the percolation threshold, the radial growth is restricted and only height growth is observed
