Additional Information:© 1951 American Institute of Physics (Received April 12, 1951) This work was part of a research program on the allotropic transformation of titanium sponsored by the ONR, U.S. Navy, under contract number N6onr-24430. The pure hafnium was obtained through the courtesy of Colonel B. R. Lawrence, Jr., Chief, Materials Laboratory, Engineering Division, Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Dayton, Ohio. The author wished to thank Mr. William V. Wright, Jr., for helping in carrying out the experiment.
