Abstract The microstructure of as-deposited Co thin films on silicon (001) substrate was characterized by TEM using wedge-shaped planar-view samples. Selected area electron diffraction showed that the as deposited Co thin films were composed of Co (α) and that no interfacial reaction took place between Co thin films and the Si substrate. The microstructure of Co thin films annealed at 250°C for 30 min was also investigated by using conventional planar-view samples. The analysis of selected area electron diffraction indicates that Co thin films react entirely with the Si substrate, and a silicide layer forms at the Co/Si interface. Dark field images clearly indicate that the interfacial layer consists of Co$_{2}$Si in irregular stripes and CoSi as fine particles but no CoSi$_{2}$ forms.
