WHAT IS CLAIMED IS:
1. A coated ceramic substrate consisting essentially of a ceramic substrate coated with a continuous or patterned film of thickness less than 10 micrometers, said film comprising an intimate mixture of at least one transition element metal and at least one element different from said transition metal element, which is from the same group of the Periodic Table of Elements as the metallic or semimetallic atom of the ceramic of the ceramic substrate.
2. The coated ceramic substrate of claim 1 wherein said at least one different element is the same as the metallic or semimetallic atom of said ceramic.
3. The coated ceramic substrate of claim 2 wherein the ceramic substrate is alumina and said at least one different element is aluminum.
4. The coated ceramic substrate of claim 3 wherein the ceramic substrate is alumina and said intimate mixture is formed from palladium and aluminum.
5. The coated ceramic substrate of claim 4 wherein said film has a thickness less than 150 nm.
6. The coated ceramic substrate of claim 1 wherein said film has a thickness less than 150 nm.
