Abstract : A study of the superconducting and Fermi surface properties of single crystal thin films using tunneling techniques is reported. Emphasis was placed on studying these characteristics experimentally as a function of orientation. The Fermi velocity was determined by studying the observed Tomasch oscillations. Most of the work was performed on films grown by epitaxy on alkali halide substrates. The study was confined to aluminum, tin, and lead. (Author)
