A general review of standard vacuum deposition techniques is followed by a description of the epitaxial growth process as applied to thin films. An open ended vertical quartz tube system, evacuated by an oil diffusion pump, used for coevaporation of Yb-Se compounds is described. X-ray diffraction has shown these films probably to be of a single phase of cubic or nearly cubic structure, a^v6 .86A, and very highly oriented. Definite signs of epitaxy can be seen in some areas of the films.
