    Strain relaxation of PbTe layers on PbSe (001) by misfit dislocation formation is shown to take place near equilibrium without kinetic barriers. A comparison of the experimental data with different strain relaxation models shows that mutual dislocation interactions are of crucial importance for...

    BaTiO3 single layer and La0.7Sr0.3MnO3/BaTiO3 multilayer films were fabricated by laser molecular-beam epitaxy. The voltage tunability of these films was investigated systematically in the frequency ranging from 10 kHz to 1 MHz. The results suggest that the sizable tunability arises from the...
