Structural transformation in thin films of binary alloys

Abstract

Structural transformation in thin films of binary alloys of 1st and 6th group elements, prepared by vacuum evaporation, has been studied by the author in detail by electron diffraction. The alloys chosen for the investigation were Ag2Te, Ag2Se, Ag2S, Cu2Te and Cu2Se. The study of thin films of these alloys revealed that there occurs a transformation in structure and on heating, the temperatures of transformation are higher compared to the alloys in the bulk state. It has also been observed that the temperatures of structural transformation during heating and cooling are different. No quantitative explanation of the result has been given and it is expected that detailed discussion of the results will be published later.
