Title: Tuning two-dimensional phase formation through epitaxial strain and growth conditions: silica and silicate on Ni x Pd 1−x (111) alloy substrates

Abstract

The combined experimental and theoretical results demonstrate the manipulation of 2D VDW silica and 2D Ni silicate through growth conditions, and the determination of the maximum epitaxial strain imparted to the 2D system through alloy substrate.
