Low melting Au based alloys offer a combination of high corrosion and creep resistance as well as good electrical and thermal conductivity, and they support the capability for fluxless soldering. Despite their high price, Au alloys are of special interest for high temperature solder applications where these characteristics are essential, e.g. special MEMS devices, sensors exposed to aggressive media, biomedical applications or in space technology. The alloying system Au-Ge is characterized by a deep eutectic point with a melting temperature of 360°C, but information on the use of eutectic Au-Ge as solder material is very limited. In this work, the results of a group project within the European COST Action MP0602 "High Temperature Lead Free Solders" on the feasibility of Au-Ge based alloys as high-temperature lead free solder will be summarized. Beside the thermodynamic assessment of a number of important alloying systems (Cu-Ge, Ge-Ni, Au-Ge-Sb, Au-Ge-Si, Au-Ge-Sn) wetting and soldering tests using eutectic Au-Ge alloy and Cu and Ni substrates were performed. Sound joints with a high strength could be produced.
