  • Measurement of Equilibrium Concentrations of Vacancies in Copper 

    Simmons, RO; Balluffi, RW (2014-07-02)
    The net added fraction of thermally-generated atomic sites, ΔNN, has been measured, during equilibrium heating to near the melting point, in a coarse-grained copper bar of 99.999% purity. The linear thermal expansion, ΔLL, ...
  • Nature of Long-Range Order in Cu3+xAu1-x 

    Gehlen, P. C.; Cohen, J. B. (2003-11-17)
    The diffuse scattering and intensities of Bragg peaks from single crystals of Cu77Au23 and Cu78Au22 have been studied for various degrees of long‐range order. The results indicate that the excess Cu atoms, replacing Au in ...
  • Lattice Parameters, Densities, Expansion Coefficients and Perfection of Structure of Cu and Cu-In alpha Phase 

    Straumanis, M. E.; Yu, L. S. (1969-04-08)
    Spectroscopically pure Cu has a lattice parameter a25 = 3.61491 Å (corrected for refraction), and a thermal expansion coefficient [alpha] = 14.87 × 10-6°C-1 between 15 and 55°C. The measured density d25 is 8.9314 ± 0.0002 ...
  • Thermal Dilation of Copper 

    Eppelsheimer, D.S.; Penman, R. R. (1950-01-07)
    The prediction that certain cubic metals may not be precisely cubic throughout a range of temperature below their melting points led to the present investigation. Pure copper was chosen as the cubic metal to examine for ...
  • The Thermal Expansion of Pure Metals: Copper, Gold, Aluminum, Nickel, and Iron 

    Nix, F. C.; MacNair, D. (1941-08-08)
    Extremely accurate determinations of the linear thermal expansions have been made interferometrically from — 196°C to temperatures about +400°C for Al and +700°C for Fe, Ni, Cu and Au. The relationship between true thermal ...
