Germanium particles were produced by homogeneous nucleation from the metal vapor in a flowing stream of nitrogen gas at pressures of 0.13–2.6 kPa. Light scattering and light absorption measurements showed particle sizes of 15–300‐nm radii while in the stream. Electron microscopy indicated that these particles can coagulate into much larger sizes on electron microscope grids. Electron and x‐ray diffraction measurements did not show any crystalline structure in these particles.
