Epitaxial growth of semiconductors under pseudomorphic conditions leads to stabilization of crystallographic structures that are unstable at equilibrium is observed. For example, the stable phase of MnTe is NiAs, but epitaxial layers of MnTe with the zinc blende structure have been grown on GaAs substrates . Stability of a given phase of the overlayer depends on parameters such as its lattice constant, and also - in the case of alloys - on the alloy composition.
