The epitaxial growth of amorphous Ge films deposited onto 110 Ge substrate is demonstrated. Substrate cleaning prior to deposition involves only conventional chemical procedures. The growth appears to be a strong function of the interface cleanliness. Two different growth mechanisms are observed: (a) a direct transition from amorphous to single-crystalline layer and (b) the growth involving the transition of amorphous to polycrystals to single crystal.
