    • Abstract


      The melting points in the KCl-KBr, RbCl-RbBr and KBr-RbBr mixed crystal systems have been measured using the microscopic method. In all the three systems, melting points vary nonlinearly with composition, with negative deviations from linearity and maximum deviation at about the equimolar concentration. The observed composition dependence of the melting points is explained qualitatively in terms of the enhanced concentration of point defects and dislocations in mixed crystals.
