Figure 3
Unit-cell parameters ar (black dots, left axis) and [alpha] (black open circles, right axis) of the laterally compressed (111) crystallites of V-Al-C-N thin films deposited at different positions X. The inset shows a schematic of the rhombohedrally distorted unit cell. The shaded diamonds correspond to the calculated lattice parameter a for the relaxed cubic unit cell.  [article HTML]
