There has been considerable interest in the past decade in developing novel materials using precision microlayering techniques. Much of this has been oriented towards crystalline epitaxy, using pairs of materials with lattice spacings that almost match. However, for most other material pairs, layer interfaces tend to be dominated by dislocations, agglomeration and interdifussion, if allowed to thermally equilibra Le.
