Abstract

In an experiment, the improved Archimedes method was used to test and analyze density–temperature properties of Ga, Sb and Ga–Sb melts. The experimental results indicated that the density of Ga7Sb93 melt shows a linear trend of decline when its temperature changes within the experimental range, whereas the densities of Ga36.5Sb63.5 and Ga30Sb70 melts show a non-continuous change near the melting point, which rises first and then drops abnormally. These results were analyzed from the perspective of a liquid–liquid structure transition according to the property changes of Ga–Sb melt.
