Abstract : The objective of the work was to clarify the interrelationship of competitive processes in the incidence of epitaxy in the vapor deposition system gold on molybdenum. A new contamination effect caused by oil diffusion pumps was discovered that caused an evanescent approach toward the major objective. For this reason a getter pump LEED system was constructed in order that structures formed during vapor deposition could be discerned in a contaminant free system. (Author)
