Abstract:

This report describes studies to determine the nature of the interactions between nickel and various refractory containers encountered in high-temperature Knudsen cell vaporization systems. High-temperature mass spectrometric measurements, in conjunction with metallographic studies, were used to determine how these interactions influenced the vaporization thermodynamics of nickel. Such information is essential to permit the determination of valid high-temperature thermodynamic activity data in multi-component alloy systems.
