Abstract: Heteroepitaxial CoxNi1-xSi2 layers with good crystalline quality (chi(min)=3.5%) have been formed by ion beam synthesis. For a sample with x=0.66, we found that this ternary silicide layer contains 11% type B and 89% type A orientation. The transmission electron microscopy investigation reveals that the type B component is mainly located at the interfaces and with a thickness of only a few monolayers. X-ray diffraction studies of the sample show that the strain of the type B component is smaller than that of the type A and is probably the reason for such a unique distribution of the type B component in the epilayer. Rutherford backscattering-channeling, Auger electron spectroscopy, transmission electronmicroscopy, and x-ray diffraction have been used in this study.
