Abstract
  • The structure of Fe films grown on the (001) surface of a Cu3Au single crystal at room temperature has been investigated by means of grazing incidence x-ray diffraction (GIXRD) and photo/Auger-electron diffraction (ED) as a function of thickness in the (3-36)-Angstrom range. The combination of GIXRD and ED allows one to obtain quantitative information on the in-plane spacing a from the former technique, and the ratio between the vertical spacing c and a, from the latter one. At low coverage the film grows pseudomorphic to the face-centered-cubic substrate. The experimental results obtained on a film of 8 Angstrom thickness clearly indicate the overcoming of the limit for pseudomorphic growth. Above this limit the film is characterized by the coexistence of the pseudomorphic phase with another tetragonally strained phase gamma, which falls on the epitaxial line of ferromagnetic face-centered cubic Fe. Finally, the development of a body-centered phase alpha, whose unit cell is rotated by 45degrees with respect to the substrate one, has been clearly observed at similar to17 Angstrom. alpha is the dominating phase for film thickness above similar to25 Angstrom and its lattice constant evolves towards the orthomorphic phase in strict quantitative agreement with epitaxial curves calculated for body-centered tetragonal iron phases.
