Crystallographic orientation relationships in the tin-lead-cadmium ternary eutectic

Journal Article


Abstract


  • The orientation relationships developed between the phases during unidirectional growth of the tin-lead-cadmium ternary eutectic have been determined by electron diffraction to be: Lamellar interfaces ∥ (0 -1 1 0)Sn ∥ (1 -1 1)pb∥ (0 0 0 1)cd Growth direction ∥ [0 0 0 1]Sn∥ [0 1 1]Pb∥ [2 -1 -1 0]Cd. It is concluded that the simple, parallel morphology exhibited by this alloy is a consequence of the development of mutually compatible lead-cadmium and lead-tin interfaces of low energy with close-packed directions in all three phases parallel to the growth direction. Orientation relationships for the lead-cadmium and tin-cadmium binary eutectics are also reported. © 1983 Chapman and Hall Ltd.
