Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A simple idea of statistical independence of thermal and chemical disorders in perfectly disordered solid solutions suggests the universality of their thermodynamic and transport properties at high temperatures. Our experimental data on diagrams of state, heat capacities, and resistivities of mixtures of heavy alkali metals convincingly support this idea. A generalization of Lindemann's criterion of melting for disordered alloys has been suggested and applied to a variety of mixtures.
