The objective of the work reported here was to study the structure of tantalum depositing on amorphous substrates by the hydrogen reduction of tantalum pentachloride at moderate temperatures. It was anticipated that the observed structures would show interesting growth phenomena due to the nature of the deposition process. In addition, it was felt the rate of the deposition process might be conducive to the formation of fault structures similar to those recently reported in annealed tungsten and niobium.
