Measurements were made by X-ray diffraction of the in-situ growth of Pd2Si films on Si(111) at room temperature. Initially the growth is commensurate with lattice matching between the film and substrate, giving rise to a strained film. Above a critical thickness, the film relaxes to an unstrained state, but retains its epitaxial relationship. During both phases of growth, intensity oscillations are seen that correspond to the formation of an interfacial layer.
