Supporting Information

We provide images for further understanding of the influence of the TEM thinning procedures and we give evidence of the random rearrangement of gold atoms by electron diffraction on a selected area. We also show the Rutherford backscattering spectra of the samples before and after the HF postdeposition treatments to demonstrate that the amount of gold atoms does not change.
