Abstract : This research has been concerned with films that are metastable compounds or multilayered composites which are quenched from the vapor phase. They have been stabilized by a number of methods which aid in the quench or by growing upon especially prepared surfaces upon which epitaxial growth can take place. The occurrence of superconductivity in the metastable films has been investigated. Newly developed methods of heat capacity and tunneling techniques have been used to study the superconducting interactions and to provide the increased understanding of the mechanisms of superconductivity necessary to reach higher transition temperatures.
