Abstract:

Work is described which shows that in the system SnTe-PbTe 1 the solid solutions have small exothermic heats of formation based on the binary compounds, 2 solid solution hardening is almost absent, 3 the Sn and Pb atoms are randomly distributed on the sublattice occupied by them and do not undergo an ordering transition during a thermal treatment designed to promote such a transition and 4 the lattice parameter changes linearly with composition. These findings suggest that the solid solutions of tin telluride and lead telluride approach ideal behavior. Author
