    The sensitivity of an imperfectly balanced impedance bridge is limited by the remaining offset voltage. Here, we present a procedure for offset reduction in impedance measurements using a lock-in amplifier, by applying a complex compensating voltage external to the bridge. This procedure takes...

    The physical system under study is a single crystal film grown epitaxially on a substrate of comparable thickness which is constrained to remain flat. In general, the layers are strained due to a mismatch in lattice parameter between the film and substrate materials. The free energy change of...
