Determination of the Epitaxial Strains of a Thermally Grown Oxide on a Metallic Substrate
A generalization of the Bollmann’s method is used to evaluate the epitaxial strains at the metal/oxide interface. The numerical approach is described and applied to the Ni/NiO system in order to study the result sensitivity to some numerical parameters.
