The Book Mobile delivers books of all types to anxiously awaiting students. They were not the ones who delivered my new indium alloys phase diagram book, but I was equally excited to receive it.
This book, called Phase Diagrams of Indium Alloys by Charles White and Hiroaki Okamoto, is something any high tech indium material user should have handy. The latest revision, number 8, was just printed and I have a crisp new copy! I encourage you to get one too if you dont already have one.҂ A copy can be purchased through ASM International.
The book details the properties of nearly 100 binary and ternary systems, all indium contained. Each system is outlined to include a phase diagram and crystal structure data. I used this information just today to identify expected melting temperaturesand homogeneity of an indium alloy which I was not familiar with already.
