The α-Sn (111) films of 150 monolayers (ML) will grow at room temperature on thermally cleaned InSb (⥘;⥘;⥘;) substrates having a 2×2 reconstructed surface. The α-Sn (111) surfaces are observed to most clearly exhibit a 3×3 reconstruction at a film thickness of 30 ML by reflection high energy electron diffraction (RHEED). When the 30 ML films are heated at 170ºC, the liquid phase begins to appear without the transition to the β-phase. From these result, effects of the InSb (⥘;⥘;⥘;) substrate on the thermal stability of the α-Sn (111) film are discussed.
