    • Abstract


      The evaporation coefficients for the vapour species from the thermal decomposition of alumina were calculated from data derived from mass spectrometric effusion and Langmuir evaporation experiments. These values fora were ≈0·2 for Al, O and AlO, ≈0·1 for Al2O, ≈O·02 for Al2O2, and ≈0·01 for AlO2.
