The epitaxial monocrystal Fe-films have first been prepared on the NaCl (100) substrate by means of targets-facing type of sputtering method. A series of electron diffraction patterns of the films are obtained by tilting around the b* axis. Electron diffraction structure analysis shows that the structure of the films corresponds to a tetragonal lattice with parameters a=b=5.86A and c=7.30A, containing four Fe-atoms, and its space group being l42d. The epitaxial growth process and the structures of the films depend strongly on substrate temperature (Ts), the thickness of the films (d), and the deposit rate (R).
