Term (Index) Definition
buffer layer  term typically refers to a layer sandwiched between two single-crystal materials to accomodate difference in their crystallographic structures(lattice constants).
superlattice  semiconductor structure comprising of several ultra-thin layers (atomic layers) engineered to obtain specific electronic and photonic properties; slight modifications of chemical composition of each layer result in slight variations of energy bandgap from layer to layer: bandgap engineering; fabrication of superlattices requires high-precision heteroepitaxial deposition methods such as MBE and MOCVD; typically involves III-V semiconductors.
