Abstract : Absolute measurements have been made of X-ray scattering from Cr, CoAl and NiAl. To a first approximation the scattering corresponds to that from ground-state free atoms; the small differences observed are discussed, particularly in relation to other published measurements. The powder techniques used for the above measurements are to be supplemented by the use of single-crystal methods. The necessary preliminary experiments are in progress. The examination of alloy systems and the analysis of the structures of alloy phases have been continued. These include the Al-Fe, Al-Mo, Al-Re, Al-Tc and CoMo systems. Interesting generalisations about the nature of the interatomic bonds, and new information about the phase diagrams, have emerged from these studies. (Author)
