Abstract : The objective of this program ONR Contract N)))14-85-K-0448 (SRI Project 1010) has been to develop a structural theory of pseudobinary semiconductor alloys grown by non-equilibrium methods. Alloys prepared this way are metastable , but often have room temperature lifetimes against transitions to their equilibrium phases that are well in excess of those any operating device is likely to experience. Because of the great advantage of the tailorability of alloy electronic and structural properties, alloys grown by these methods have received great emphasis in recent years. The program has contributed to the development of a comprehensive phase theory of these nonequilibrium systems. (jes)
