Germanium Tetrachloride (GeCl4)
Germanium tetrachloride (GeCl4) is a colorless liquid. It is used as an intermediate in the production of purified germanium dioxide and germanium metal.
GeCl4 is transparent to infrared light and therefore useful in optical materials. It is also widely used as a semiconductor and as an alloying agent. Silicon-germanium alloys are used for low-cost, high-speed integrated circuits as well as precision optical components, and germanium tetrachloride is an important dopant material in the manufacturing of optical fibers for telecommunications. A further use of germanium dioxide is as a polymerization catalyst, widely used in Japan for the manufacturing of PET bottles for water.

Performing die-attach using AuSn solder alloy preforms against gold plating? You may need an off-eutectic solder alloy to compensate for the Au that is scavenged from the plating during the reflow process get you back to 80Au/20Sn.
Indium Corporation presents paper at Advanced Technology Workshop that provdes metal thermal interface materials (TIMs) have a higher insertion rate and higher thermal conductivity than traditional TIMs for burn-in and test.
