Annotation The paper presents the results of theoretical basis of possibility of nanostructured thin-film formation by mechanical stress creation in ultra-thin films deposited on a substrate during their thermal annealing. The experiment results of palladium (Pd) ultra-thin films obtained on silicon (Si) substrates and their vacuum annealing are also presented. The samples were studied by AES and SEM methods.
