ep·i·tax·y

(ep'i-tak'sē),
The growth of one crystal in one or more specific orientations on the substrate of another kind of crystal, with a close geometric fit between the networks in contact; seen in the alternating layers of different composition in stones from the kidney and gallbladder, indicating an abrupt change of composition during formation.
[epi- + G. taxis, arrangement]

We consider that these unusual phenomena found in high-speed spun low tacticity fibers are attributed to strong supercooling during melt spinning, caused by its slower crystallization rates and rapid cooling, and the subsequent increase of epitaxially branched lamellae.
The semiconductor industry recently announced a revolutionary advance in materials technology when a method was discovered to grow III-V semiconductor materials such as GaAs epitaxially on top of silicon (using an intermediate molecular layer).
