Abstract : Measurements of the partial pressures in the mercury-cadmium-tellurium system are indicated. The thermodynamic analysis of this system is briefly sketched. References to detailed accounts of these results are cited. There now exist sufficient data that this system is to a large extent thermodynamically characterized. Moreover, a thermodynamic model has been established that allows a quantitative reproduction of essentially all of what appears to be the reliable phase diagram, partial pressure, and general thermodynamic data.
