Au-Yb (Gold-Ytterbium) K.A. Gschneidner, Jr., F.W. Calderwood, H. Okamoto, and T.B. Massalski The Yb-Au system contains eight intermetallic compounds. The assessed phase diagram is based primarily on the work of [69Ian] and [70Ian], who investigated the phase relationships in this system. In the assessed diagram, the melting temperature for Au has been raised from the reported value of 1060 C [69Ian,70Ian] to 1064.43 C. Likewise, the melting point and the g = b transformation temperature for Yb are shown at 819 and 795 C, respectively. The Yb-rich compound, Yb7Au3, decomposes peritectically to the liquid and Yb2Au when heated above 661 C. Yb7Au3 has the hexagonal structure of the Fe3Th7 type. Yb2Au also decomposes peritectically; when heated above 712 C, it decomposes to the melt and Yb5Au3. Yb2Au crystallizes in the orthorhombic Co2Si-type structure. Both Yb5Au3 and Yb5Au4 form peritectically, the former at 861 C from the melt and Yb5Au4, and the latter at 926 C from the melt and bYbAu. Yb5Au3 crystallizes in the tetragonal Cr5B3-type structure, and Yb5Au4 crystallizes in the orthorhombic Sm5Ge4 type. YbAu has the highest melting point of any compound in the Yb-Au system (1292 C). [69Ian] observed complex behavior for YbAu. Only two thermal arrests were observed on cooling from the molten state to room temperature, one at 1292 C and one at 1278 C. Samples annealed below 400 C showed a complex structure, and another modification was present for samples annealed at 500 to 700 C. Above 900 C, CsCl-type structure appeared. A solid solution of Au in YbAu was found to exist for alloys between 50 and 53.5 at.% Au, with a maximum solubility at 1061 C. The low-temperature form crystallizes in the orthorhombic FeB-type structure. YbAu2 melts congruently at 1240 C and crystallizes in the tetragonal MoSi2- type structure. The congruently melting compound, YbAu3, melts at 1150 C and crystallizes in the orthorhombic Cu3Ti-type structure. The Au-rich compound, YbAu4, forms peritectically at 989 C from YbAu3 and the melt. It crystallizes in the tetragonal MoNi4-type structure. Four eutectic points occur in the Yb-Au system. The eutectic between (Yb) and Yb7Au3 exists at 18.5 at.% Au and 546 C; the eutectic between bYbAu and YbAu2 exists at 58.5 at.% Au and 1061 C; the eutectic between YbAu2 and YbAu3 exists at 72 at.% Au and 1131 C; and the eutectic between YbAu4 and Au exists at 89 at.% Au and ~ 817 C. The maximum solubility of Yb in (Au) is 6.9 at.% Yb at the eutectic temperature of 817 C [65Rid]. [69Ian] and [70Ian] reported that no solubility of Au in (Yb) was detected. [68Sad], who studied crystal chemistry of the Au-rich binary alloy phases of the heavy rare earths, observed that Yb behaves like a trivalent rare earth in Au solid solutions. This character is maintained in YbAu2, YbAu3, and YbAu4; only in YbAu is there an abnormally high atomic volume, which indicated a larger atomic size and a lower valency than in the other phases. 65Rid: P.E.
