Conclusions

  1. 1.

    Growth of the layer of Nb3Sn during the diffusional interaction of niobium with tin bronze is due to the diffusion of tin from bronze to niobium along the grain boundaries of the compound.

     
  2. 2.

    The width of the boundary region in which diffusion of tin occurs in the process of annealing at 800° is ∼600 Å.
