Epitaxial strain-stabilized hexagonal modifications can occur in many metal films grown on (100) surfaces of cubic crystals and can have a strong influence on their magnetic properties. The necessary conditions for the formation of hcp crystals, identification criteria, examples and implications for the magnetic properties of thin film systems involving hcp layers are discussed.
