Influence of Low Nickel Contents on the Surface Tension and Density of Nickel–Indium Melts
Section: Soft Matter
Original Author's Text: Ukrainian
Abstract: The density and the surface tension coefcient of nickel–indium melts with low Ni contents ranging from 0 to 15 at.% have been studied, by using the sessile drop method. Analytic expressions are derived for the temperature dependences of the density and the surface tension coefcient of a melt. Anomalies in the concentration dependences of the density and the surface tension coefcient are revealed. They are supposed to be caused by structural inhomogeneities both near the melt surface and in the melt bulk.
Key words: density, surface tension, Ni–In molten alloys, cluster structure.
