Abstract

Transmission electron spectroscopic investigations of thin layers of AuSn on single‐crystal Au foils–prepared by dipping the foils for varying lengths of time into ethylenediamine solutions of K4 Sn9–demonstrated epitaxial growth of AuSn crystallites. It has been known for a long time that Sn 940 ions immediately attack gold, but this is the first close characterization of the surface species formed.
