Structure of epitaxially grown gold films of varying thickness (10-1000 Å) has been investigated using LEED, AES, resistivity measurements and X-ray diffraction analysis. Silicon 111-oriented crystals, which are prehandled to exhibit √3 × √3 R 30°-superstructure in the LEED pattern, serve as substrates. The gold films show a homogeneous structure with smooth surfaces and a marked (111)-orientation. The use of silicon substrates, however, is complicated by the fact, that silicon diffuses through the gold films to a small extent even at room temperature.
