    A novel continuous-compositional-spread (CCS) technique based on the nonuniformity of the deposition rate typically observed in pulsed-laser deposition (PLD) is introduced. Using rapid (submonolayer) sequential deposition of the phase spread's constituents, intermixing of the constituents occurs...
