Description

Some users experiencing problems with our naming conventions related to layers.
Simple tutorial is necessary, which will explain

  • one layer systems, infinite in all directions, Born Approximation
  • two layers system, layers are semi-infinite in z, bottom is what we call substrate, top is what we call air layer. DWBA.
  • 3 and more layer system, where thickness should be defined for all intermediate layers
  • order of adding of layers to multi layers, from top to bottom
  • may be the idea of copying (changing of layer's parameters is not possible after the layer was added to the multi layer)
  • interfaces with roughness, multi layer cross correlation roughness
