This report details the accomplishments of a study of the correlation of surface properties and superconducting properties of thin film superconductors. This report may be conveniently divided into three broad areas, 1 surface characterization, 2 thin film deposition, and 3 superconducting measurements. Thin films of niobium were sputter gun deposited under controlled conditions and subsequently analyzed using auger electron spectroscopy. The film thickness was varied and critical temperature measured. A technique for measuring the surface roughness was developed.
