The melting point of palladium by a pulse heating method

  • A. P. Miiller
  • A. Cezairliyan


The melting point of 99.95+% pure palladium was measured by means of a subsecond duration pulse heating technique. The average temperature at the melting point for three specimens was 1827 K with an average absolute deviation from the mean of 0.1 K. The total error in temperature is estimated to be not more than ±4 K.
