Phase equilibria were studied in the Mo-Ga-N system at 800 °C in order to better understand the metallurgy of Mo contacts to the wide band gap semiconductor GaN. Liquid Ga metal and the solid phases Mo8Ga41, Mo3Ga, and β-Mo2N were experimentally observed to be in thermodynamic equilibrium with GaN. Equilibrium between γ-Mo2N and GaN can also be inferred. No ternary phases were found in any of the samples examined in this study.
