Abstract

ZnO solidus and liquidus boundaries in the ZnO-Bi2O3 system were investigated via analytical electron microscopy (AEM), electron probe microanalysis (EPMA), and secondary ion mass spectrometry (SIMS). The Bi2O3 solubility is highest - 0.24 ± 0.04 mol% - at the eutectic temperature of 740°C and decreases rapidly with increasing temperature. Detection limits and quantification procedures of X-ray microanalysis (AEM, EPMA) and ion microanalysis (SIMS) are discussed with respect to the determination of phase diagrams involving low solubility phases.
