Phase diagram of AuCu-Ag pseudobinary alloy


The phase diagram of the AuCu-Ag pseudobinary alloy was determined by means of transmission electron microscopy (TEM). By tetrahedron approximation of a cluster variation method, an isothermal section was obtained theoretically to reproduce the AuCu-Ag pseudobinary phase diagram. As a result, the Au-Cu-Ag ternary phase diagram was also determined.
