    Abstract:
    Low temperature X-ray diffraction studies show that the cubic → tetragonal martensitic transformation in Nb3Sn and V3 Si is accompanied by a change in volume and is therefore a first order thermodynamic phase change. The axial ratio of the Nb3Sn martensite is confirmed to be less than unity.
