An Investigation of the Manganese Indium System

  title={An Investigation of the Manganese Indium System},
  author={Walter V. Goeddel},
A preliminary phase-equilibria study has been made of the manganese-indium alloy system by means of thermal analysis (cooling curves) and metallographic studies (photomicrographs). Ferromagnetism has been found to exist in alloys containing up to 70 atom percent manganese and has tentatively been attributed to the compound Mn 2 In. A phase diagram has been proposed, on the basis of the data obtained, in which the indium rich portion of the system consists of indium plus Mn 2 In, while… CONTINUE READING
