The Grain Boundary Wetting in the Sn– 25 at% In Alloys
The grain boundary (GB) wetting was investigated in the Sn – 25 at.% In alloy. It was found that the portion of GBs wetted by the melt depends on the annealing temperature. No GB completely wetted by melt was observed at 140°C, while all GBs were fully wetted after annealing at 180°C. Between 140°C and 180°C the portion of wetted GBs increases with increasing temperature. The tie-lines of GB wetting phase transition were constructed in the Sn–In bulk phase diagram.
