Abstract The physical sputtering of gold surfaces by argon–hydrogen pulsed direct-current glow discharges has been measured for various gas compositions, and an optimum has been found at 5–20% H2. Furthermore, the energy distributions of the ions hitting the cathodic surface have been measured and correlated to the sputtering rates using known sputtering-yield curves. It was
