Copper film growth using thermal evaporation methods was studied using molecular dynamics simulations. The AlSiMgCuFe modified embedded atom method potential was used to describe interaction of Cu-Cu, Si-Si and Cu-Si atoms. Our results showed that the variations of substrate temperature affected crystal structure composition and surface roughness of the produced copper film catalyst substrate. In this study, we observed intermixing phenomenon after deposition process. The increasing of
