We have succeeded in growing an epitaxial film on a quasicrystal. Au-depositions on a quasiperiodic surface of a decagonal Al-Ni-Co quasicrystal gave rise to an epitaxial film with a tenfold symmetry, i.e., a layer of multiply twinned AuAl2 crystals with (110)-oriented surfaces and azimuthal orientations corresponding to the tenfold symmetry of the substrate.
