X-Ni Phase Diagrams
- Practical Electron Microscopy and Database -
- An Online Book -


This book (Practical Electron Microscopy and Database) is a reference for TEM and SEM students, operators, engineers, technicians, managers, and researchers.


The phase diagram of nickel silicides consists of various phases (some are shown in Figure 2475a): three polymorphic Ni3Si structures (β1, β2 and β3), Ni31Si12 (γ), NiSi3(D03, D022), Ni5Si2 (D8h),  two polymorphic Ni2Si structures (δ = C23, and θ = B82), Ni2Si (C37, D03, D022), Ni3Si2 (ε), NiSi (MnP), NiSi2 (α= CaF2, β),  Ni3Si2-ε', NiSi2 (CaCl2 = C35), and NiSi (L10).
