Epitaxial growth is a critical technology in numerous areas ranging from elemental semiconductors to optoelectronic materials, from magnetic multilayers to inorganic insulators, from protein crystals to quantum dots. This book brings together an international mix of researchers and scientists to address common themes in epitaxial growth. Contributions by experts in the field are enriched by the additional mix of student and invited papers. Topics include: growth mechanisms; characterization; strained systems and novel epitaxy.
