Abstract

Because of the discrepancy as to whether there is solid solubility in the gallium-indium system, and the fact that no alloys with less than 1% indium were ever investigated; the possibility of solid solubility in either or both ends of the diagram was not overlooked. According to Hume-Rothery, two alloys with the same relative positions on the Periodic Chart should have about the same alloying habits.
