Ames National Laboratory is a government-owned, contractor-operated national laboratory of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), operated by and located on the campus of Iowa State University in Ames, Iowa.

For more than 70 years, the Ames National Laboratory has successfully partnered with Iowa State University, and is unique among the 17 DOE laboratories in that it is physically located on the campus of a major research university. Many of the scientists and administrators at the Laboratory also hold faculty positions at the University and the Laboratory has access to both undergraduate and graduate student talent.

Abstract

The Ni-Pr phase diagram on the Pr-rich side was revised using differential thermal analysis, differential scanning calorimetry, and scanning electron microscopy. The existence of four stoichiometric compounds, Ni2Pr, NiPr, Ni3Pr7, and NiPr3, was confirmed; however, the melting temperatures of 766 °C (NiPr), 566 °C (Ni3Pr7), and 562 °C (NiPr3) are considerably different from the previously reported values. The same was true for the four eutectic reactions, which were determined to be as follows: liquid (L) (45±1 at.% Pr) ↔ Ni2Pr+NiPr at a mean temperature of 732±5 °C; L (65±1 at.% Pr) ↔ NiPr+Ni3Pr7 at a mean temperature of 550±2 °C; L (72±2 at.% Pr) ↔ Ni3Pr7+NiPr3 at a mean temperature of 557±2 °C; and L (77±1 at.% Pr) ↔ NiPr3+Pr.
