The phase diagram of the Nb-Ge system is plotted. Three intermetallic compounds are formed in the Nb-Ge system: Nb3Ge, Nb5Ge3, and NbGe2. The compound Nb3Ge melts with decomposition in a peri-tectic reaction at 1970°, while Nb5Ge3 and NbGe2 melt congruently at 2110 and 1670°C respectively. There are three eutectic equilibria in this system: at 1940, 1590, and 950°C. The ranges of homoene-ity of the phases present are determined.
