Previously1 we reported the fabrication, structure, and electrical transport properties of Mo/Ta superlattices. This present paper reports a more quantitative analysis used to explain an observed wavelength-dependent strain perpendicular to the layers in terms of the van der Merwe2,3 model for epitaxial superlattices. These results are correlated with an anomalous decrease in the c44 elastic stiffness constant of Mo/Ta for 20 Å < ∧ < 50 Å.
