Further evidence of the low temperature phase transformation in Nb3 Sn and V3 Si

Low temperature X-ray diffraction studies show that the cubic → tetragonal martensitic transformation in Nb3Sn and V3Si is accompanied by a change in volume and is therefore a first order thermodynamic phase change. The axial ratio of the Nb3Sn martensite is confirmed to be less than unity. © 1967.
