On the basis of thermodynamic properties and phase diagram data, the Cu-In binary system was thermodynamically assessed. The phases in this system were modeled using the Redlich-Kister expression for the Gibbs energies of the solution phases, adopting three-sublattice models for γ and η′, and assuming stoichiometric compounds for other intermetallic phases. Then a set of consistent parameters was obtained by the CALPHAD method, by which reasonable agreement can be realized between the thermodynamic properties for various phases and phase relations of this system.
