AbstractSn film growth on the fivefold surface of icosahedral Al63Cu24Fe13 has been investigated by employing scanning tunneling microscopy. For about monolayer coverage, the deposited Sn forms a layer of monoatomic height. A Fourier transform of the layer's structure reveals quasicrystalline long range order. At higher coverage, flat-topped clusters of uniform heights are formed. The clusters preferentially grow at the step edges.
