Title: Evaluation of the Current Status of the Combinatorial Approach for the Study of Phase Diagrams
Published: December 21, 2012
Abstract: This paper provides an evaluation of the effectiveness of using the high throughput combinatorial approach for preparing phase diagrams of thin film and bulk materials. Our evaluation is based primarily on examples of combinatorial phase diagrams that have been reported in the literature using diffusion couple/diffusion multiple techniques and thin film techniques. Various factors that affect the construction of these phase diagrams are examined. Instrumentation and analytical approaches needed to improve data acquisition and data analysis are summarized.
