Abstract

Using bimetallic thin film samples, it has been found that the noble (Cu, Ag, and Au) and transition metals (Ni, Pd, and Pt) react with Pb and Sn at room temperature. The product which can be detected by X-ray diffraction after a few days of annealing is an intermetallic compound whose composition is most rich in Pb or in Sn. The rate of the reaction and the selected growth of the compounds have been explained to depend on the interstitial diffusion of the noble and transition metals in Pb and Sn, and the relative densities between the reactants and compounds.
