The equilibrated grain boundary groove shapes of solid Sn in equilibrium with the Sn-Cu eutectic liquid were observed from a quenched sample. The Gibbs-Thomson coefficient, solid-liquid interfacial energy and grain boundary energy of solid Sn have been determined to be (8.7 ± 0.6) × 10-8 Km, (113.1 ± 13.6) × 10-3 J m-2 and (222.4 ± 28.9) × 10-3 J m-2, respectively. The thermal conductivity of solid phase and the thermal conductivity ratio of liquid phase to solid phase for Sn-1.3 at.%Cu alloy have also been measured with radial heat flow apparatus and Bridgman type growth apparatus, respectively. © 2009 Elsevier B.V.
