    Five consecutive InGaAs-GaAs growths are conducted simultaneously on GaAs-based thin film compliant substrates and thick reference substrates using double crystal x-ray diffraction. The In0.07Ga0.93As layers are grown to thicknesses below and above the conventional critical thickness. It is found that InGaAs films grown on the compliant substrates have a larger critical thickness and slow strain relief than InGaAs grown on conventional substrates.
