The sticking of metal atoms at low energies to different surfaces has been studied. The low energy atoms were produced by sputtering. Two or four substrates were exposed in each experiment in order to make relative measurements of the sticking probabilities. A high degree of accuracy was made possible by rotating the collectors in front of the target during a sufficiently long time to achieve identical exposures. For the metals nickel, stainless steel and vanadium the calculated relative sticking probabilities on lighter materials (beryllium, graphite, aluminium and silicon) differed by only 1-2%, while the uncertainty in the surface analysis method, RBS, was somewhat larger, 4%. Thus, within the error of the analysis, sticking is found to be the same in these cases. For vanadium sticking to silver, a lower sticking was found, 18% lower than the sticking to beryllium, carbon and aluminium. This 18% reduction should correspond to reflection, but is low considering that the majority of the sputtered particles have energies in the range 1-10 eV.
