    Abstract. Thin Si[sub l-y]C[sub y] epilayers were grown by MBE on (100) Si single-crystal substrates either directly on a dislocation-free or on a highly dislocated Si buffer layer. The orientation of the epilayers and their strain status were measured by double-crystal X-ray diffraction. Cross...

    We have investigated the magnetization reversal in thin films of the half-metallic ferromagnet chromium dioxide, CrO[SUB2], grown on single crystal TiO[SUB2] (100) and (110) substrates. X-ray diffraction analysis indicated epitaxial growth of CrO[SUB2] in the rutile crystal structure with the c...

    Initial crystallization of Pb-deficient, lanthanum modified lead zirconate titanate (PLZT) layers followed by post-crystallization phase conversion can be used to obtain high quality PLZT thin films. However, phase evolution in Pb-deficient PLZT thin films is not well understood. To characterize...

    Abstract. The growth of ex situ Tl[sub 2]Ba[sub 2]CuO[sub 6] films on single-crystal LaAlO[sub 3] was investigated using atomic force microscopy and X-ray diffraction. Most of the film surface consisted of flat areas separated by single or several unit-cell steps. This morphology suggests that...
