Pagination or Media Count:
The effect of transition element binary solid solution additions upon the recrystallization temperature of Nb was investigated. The elements Mn, Fe, Co, Ni, W, Re, and Os lower the recrystallization temperature, while Ti, V, Cr, Zr, Mo, Ru, Rh, Pd, Hf, Ta, W, Ir, and Pt raise it. A correlation is noted between the rate of change of recrystallization temperature with atomic percent solute and the free atom electron configuration of the solute element.
