The production of reliable phase equilibria data for systems of cryogenic fluid mixtures has been of increasing importance in the last several years. Until recently, the data for systems containing neon were conspicuously lacking. At present, however, data have been published for several systems containing neon with another cryogenic fluid. Those binary systems which have been studied in the liquid-vapor region are neon with: n-H2 [1–3], p-H2 [4], D2 [5,6], N2 [7] Ar [8–10], O2 [11]. Of this list, only the Ne-n-H2 system has been thoroughly covered. The N2 and Ar systems have been covered up to 1000 psi. The O2 system has been covered up to 5000 psi. Finally, the D2 and p-H2 systems have only been investigated near the solidus curve. In the preceding list of systems, there is one system obviously lacking: the Ne-He system. This was the subject of the present investigation.
