Isobaric equation of state for liquid Hg1-xCdxTe

Alparslan Öztekin, Arne J. Pearlstein

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A relationship for the continuous dependence of the density of temperature and composition for liquid Hg1-xCdxTe is developed, which captures the quadratic variation with temperature at low temperature and depends linearly on T at higher temperature. The isobaric equation has a thermal expansivity that approaches a constant value at a higher temperature, a point which is critical in computations of buoyancy-driven flow over the wide temperature ranges commonly encountered in directional solidification.
