I have deposited Silicon on Aluminum substrates without a problem. I did not get that highly polished look. Just smooth. I believe that finish look might depend on you substrate polish. Also vacuum consideratons and cleanliness might help the finish. I used resistive evaporation techniques. If you use a Tungsten basket to evaporate your Si, be careful the basket becomes extremely brittle and in some instances Si will "eat away" you basket. You might want to compare Steel properties with Tungsten. Good luck. If you have further questions just email me
