ANTIMONY tin alloys1 containing 43, 50, and 55 per cent of antimony were annealed respectively at temperatures of 240°, 270°, 290°, in a closed glass tube for 200 hours, then slowly cooled to 240° and kept 25 hours at this temperature, and by slow cooling brought to room temperature. These samples showed the X-ray spectrum lines belonging to a simple cubic lattice, as shown in the accompanying photogram (Fig. 1). The table below indicatesthe result of the X-ray analysis.
