Partial Pressures for Several In-Se Compositions from Optical Absorbance of the Vapor
Journal of Phase Equilibria
The optical absorbance of the vapor phase over various In-Se compositions between 33.3–60.99 at.% Se and 673–1418 K was measured and used to obtain the partial pressures of Se2(g) and In2Se(g). The results are in agreement with silica Bourdon gauge measurements for compositions between 50–61 at.%, but significantly higher than those from Knudsen cell and simultaneous Knudsen-torsion cell measurements. It is found that 60.99 at.% Se lies outside the sesquiselenide homogeneity range and 59.98 at.% Se lies inside and is the congruently melting composition. The Gibbs energy of formation of the liquid from its pure liquid elements between 1000–1300 K is essentially independent of temperature and falls between −36 to −38 kJ per g atomic weight for 50 and 56% Se at 1200 and 1300 K.
