The growth and structure of ultra thin films of terbium deposited on Co(101̄0) have been studied by X-ray photoemission, Auger spectroscopy and low energy electron diffraction at 600 K. Two stages are observed in the growth mode: the growth of about two Tb layers is followed by an interdiffusion process, leading to the formation of an alloy. We also show that two-dimensional ordering of the film occurs at 600 K in the monolayer range.
