Changes in the point defect concentrations have been studied using Debye-Scherrer x-ray powder diffraction on samples equilibrated in various environments. The data have been integrated with information from the literature to derive an enthalpy of oxidation and an enthalpy of solution for LiNb3 08 into LiNbO3.
