The diffusion coefficient for Ru in Ni (D_(Ni)^(Ru)) was determined by the thin-film diffusion method in the temperature range of 1073 to 1673 K and is given by the expression: D^(Ru)_(Ni)(cm^2 sec^(−1))=5.0 (±0.7)·10^(−3) exp[−2.3(±0.1)·10^(12) erg mole^(−1)/RT] where R is the gas constant and T is the temperature in K. Phase boundaries and tie lines in a Ni-Fe-Ru-rich system were determined at 1273, 1073 and 873 K. A wide miscibility gap is present at each temperature, separating a close-packed hexagonal ϵRu-Fe phase from a face-centered cubic γNi-Fe phase, The partitioning behavior of Pt and Ir between phases in a Ni-Fe-Ru-rich system and V between phases in a Ni-Fe-O-rich system was determined at 873 K. Pt partitions preferentially into the γNi-Fe phase, whereas Ir prefers the ϵRu-Fe phase. V partitions strongly into Fe oxides relative to γNi-Fe. The experimental results have applications in the fields of meteoritics, ore-deposit geology and materials science.
