    Formation of silicides in the presence of a thin gold interlayer is studied, making use of the rapid outdiffusion of Si through gold. With Si being the dominant diffusing species, an enhanced rate is expected, as observed for PtSi, Fe3Si, CoSi, and MoSi2. No enhancement is expected when metal is...
