Epitaxial thin layers or multilayers can now be grown with a high degree of perfection using ultra high vacuum evaporation techniques. Although it is still in general difficult to predict which material can be grown onto a particular substrate, a number of qualitative guidelines may be extracted from existing theories. In this respect the most succesful. theory is the original work of Frank and van der Merwe (FM) [1]. Within the Frenkel-Kontorowa model they calculated the misfit ranges for which pseudomorphous growth is possible.
