Abstract

A review of investigations relating to the phase diagrams of the Nb-Sn system and the superconducting properties of the compound Nb3Sn is presented. The high-niobium side of the Nb-Sn phase diagram is studied by x-ray structural and microstructural analysis. The compound Nb3Sn has a range of homogene­ity and is stable right down to room temperature. Measurements of TK show that the critical temperature of Nb3Sn increases linearly with the amount of tin present.
