The epitaxial growth1,2 of a bcc form of cobalt, on (110) GaAs, has stimulated a great deal of interest in metastable phases of the magnetic transition metal elements. An issue of general importance in this kind of system concerns the accommodation of lattice mismatch, including possible differences in symmetry, at the heterostructure interfaces. The resulting interface structure is known to play a crucial role in the magnetic properties of such materials, especially with regard to anisotropy3, interlayer coupling,4,5 and giant magnetoresistance effects6.
