An Au-Co alloy with an extensive composition range was electrodeposited from a gold sulfite and cobalt sulfate mixture. The Au-Co alloy electrodeposits were analyzed by XRD and TEM and the relationship between the phase and thermal equilibrium diagrams was investigated. The Au-Co alloy electrodeposits formed a solid solution over an extensive composition range. It was also revealed that the composition of the electrodeposited Au-Co alloy was equal to that of the quenched phase at a high temperature, about 950°C.
