Abstract

Differential scanning calorimetric (DSC) measurements have been carried out on Bi-Sn based amalgam precursors to be used in compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) to study the changes in melting and solidifying behaviour caused by In dopant. The phase and elemental compositions of the samples have been characterized by using X-ray diffraction (XRD) and scanning electron microscopy-energy dispersive X-ray analysis (SEM-EDX), respectively. One of the endothermic peaks of the liquid amalgam formation shifted from 121°C to 112 and 105°C, with increasing content of 2.5 and 4.8 mass% In of samples, respectively.
