Silicon and Carbon exist readily in pure form and in the 50/50 combination of Silicon Carbide in cubic and hexagonal forms. Carbon is known to be slightly soluble in Si and vice-versa and the reasons for this are not well known. To investigate this, the stability of various Six-1Cx alloys were investigated with x ranging between 0 and 1.
