Isothermal sections of the ternary Ga-Mn-Ni phase diagram at 800 and 1000 °C have been investigated for alloys with a manganese content below 70 at.% for 800 °C and a content below 65 at.% at 1000 °C. The high-temperature phase relations among the solid phases have been analyzed with diffusion couples and by energy dispersion x-ray spectroscopy (EDX) on quenched two-phase alloys. For these temperatures, the solidus line was determined from quenched alloys from the solid and liquid two-phase region by EDX analysis and the liquidus line by an overall evaluation of the phases found in the quenched alloys.
By powder x-ray diffraction (XRD) measurements, the results for the equilibria among the solid phases were confirmed and the lattice parameters for the martensite formed from the β phase have been determined over a wide range of compositions.
