Thin films of C60 in which up to 50% of the fullerenes contain an alkali ion have ben produced by irradiating successive monolayers of C60 with an ion beam of appropriate energy. The films have been characterised by laser desorption mass spectrometry. They are stable in air and the endohedral fullerenes can be sublimed. The efficiency of the production method is much higher than any other available method for producing endohedral fullerenes and should be generally applicable to other endohedral species.
