A recent article by Yoshida, Langmayr, Fratzl, and Vogl using a combination of high-temperature Mössbauer spectroscopy and small-angle x-ray-scattering techniques concludes that clustering of Fe atoms does not occur in Au1-xFex, with x=0.01, 0.05, and 0.15. Contrary to this finding, our investigations, based upon transmission electron microscopy, small-angle scattering, and x-ray diffuse scattering analyses show that the cluster model is the most plausible explanation to the various structural and magnetic observations made so far.
