Abstract

A x-ray diffractometer for the studies of liquid metals has been designed. Measurements up to 1500℃ could be carried out, and scanning from 7°to 150°could be reached in this apparatus. The utility of this apparatus was demon-strated by obtaining the radial distribution function of mercury at room temperature and comparing with that reported by several workers. The nearest neighbour distance and first coordination number in present work are 3.07Å and 8.3 atoms (k_<max>=12.0) respectively. They are in good agreements with those of previous works for mercury.
