    Both Au and Cu are so-called fast diffusers in Sn, and can diffuse very long distances in Sn in a relatively short time. In this study, the cross-interaction between Au and Cu across a layer of Su was investigated through the use of the Au/Sn/Cu ternary diffusion couples. A 7-µm Au layer and...
