The Characterization of Modulated Metallic Structures by X-Ray Diffraction

  • Roy Clarke
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 163)


Artificial heterostructures provide fascinating examples of solid state systems in which structure and composition can be controlled on an atomic scale in order to achieve extraordinary physical properties [1,2]. This microscopic control of physical properties, for long a dream of solid state physicists and materials scientists, is made possible by recent progress in thin film deposition techniques and new methods for their characterization. Many of these advances are described in accompanying papers in these proceedings.
