Amorphous Nb-19 at% Si alloy, prepared by rapid quenching from the molten state, was annealed while being subjected to a pressure of 10 GPA. X-ray diffraction investigations on the alloy specimens quenched to ambient conditions have shown that pressure greatly alters the crystallization characteristics and the cubic A15 (Nb3Si)-phase forms in preference to the tetragonal Nb3Si-phase at temperatures in the range from 710° C to 800° C. Up to 680° C, the component atoms do not show any tendency towards ordering upon crystallization and the body-centred tetragonal solid solution forms; while, at 830° C, niobium atoms diffuse to form the body-centred cubic Nb precipitates. Superconducting properties have been measured for the single-phase A15 structure with the lattice parameter a=0.5155 nm with the results that the transition temperature, TC, is 3.4 K and the temperature coefficient of the upper critical field, HC2, is 1.2 MA m-1 K-1 (15 kOe K-1).
