Thermal conductivity and interfacial energies of solid Sn in the Sn-Cu alloy
MetadataShow full item record
The equilibrated grain boundary groove shapes of solid Sn in equilibrium with the Sn-Cu eutectic liquid were observed from a quenched sample. The Gibbs-Thomson coefficient, solid-liquid interfacial energy and grain boundary energy of solid Sn have been determined to be (8.7 +/- 0.6) x 10(-8) Km, (113.1 +/- 13.6) x 10(-3) J m(-2) and (222.4 +/- 28.9) x 10(-3) J m(-2), respectively. The thermal conductivity of solid phase and the thermal conductivity ratio of liquid phase to solid phase for Sn-1.3 at.%Cu alloy have also been measured with radial heat flow apparatus and Bridgman type growth apparatus, respectively.
