Thermodynamics of Chemical Reactions: Growing Si Nanowires

One of the cool things that an understanding of reaction equilibrium allows us to do is to manipulate the chemical potential of one of the species by controlling that of the other species that participate in a reaction. For example, … Continue reading

Gas-Gas Miscibility Gaps?

Many binary phase diagrams display a miscibility gap in the solid state (Ni-Au) as well as in the liquid state (check out the monotectic transformations in the Cu-Se system). What about gas-gas miscibility gaps? Gases behave ideally at low pressures … Continue reading
